So I need to create a word problem but it's very hard.

My equation is 6(1/2x+3)=7(5)-2.

i think it is like this but i am not too sure.

 

6(1/2x+3)                          =7(5)-2

6*1/2(x)=3x                      7*5=35

6*3=18                             35-2=33

so:

6(1/2x+3)=3x+18             7(5)-2=33

 

                            3x+18=33

take 18 from both sides:

                             3x=15

divide both sides by 3

                              x=5
