\(6(y + 1) \,=\, 7(x - 2)\)

                                               Divide both sides of the equation by  7 .

\(\frac67(y + 1)\, =\, x - 2\)

                                               Add  2  to both sides of the equation.

\(\frac67(y + 1)+2\, =\, x\)

                                               We could stop here, but let's simplify it.

\(x\,=\,\frac67(y + 1)+2\)

                                               Distribute  \(\frac67\)  to the terms in parenthesees.

\(x\,=\,\frac67y + \frac67+2\)

                                               Add  \(\frac67+2\)

\(x\,=\,\frac67y + \frac67+\frac{14}{7}\\~\\ x\,=\,\frac67y + \frac{20}{7}\)
