$$x$$ is the number of hours Lenny worked in July and $$\frac{1}{2}x$$ is the number of hours that Lenny spent working in June.

We know that Lenny worked 84 hours, so we add the two coefficients to get $$1.5x = 84$$

This means that in the month of July, Lenny worked 56 hours, and in the month of June, Lenny worked 26 hours.

$$x=56$$ and $$1.5x = 28$$

Hope this helps!
