Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you start adding 5/2 to both sides, you are following the same logic you used when you worked the problem. This makes it less likely to catch any mistakes with your checking. You need to figure out what 1/2  12 is, and also what 9  5/2 is. Work it all the way until you have either something like 1 = 1
