1 1/2 −( 5/6 x+ 1/3 )= 8/9       note.....1 + 1/2  =  3/2  ....so we have....

 

3/2 - (5/6)x - 1/3  = 8/9         multiply through by the common denominator of 2,6,3,9 = 18

 

And we have

 

27 - 15x - 6 = 16

 

21 - 15x  =  16      add 15x to both sides, subtract 16 from both sides

 

5 = 15x        divide both sides by 15

 

5/15  = x  = 1/3

 

 

cool cool cool
