    (25/8)x-(22/5)=(15/2) << change all into fractions-then add (22/5) to both side, then muliply (8/25). And yes your on the right track.

    3 1/8x - 22/5 + 22/5= 7 1/2 3 1/8x= 15/2 + 22/5 25/8x - 25/8= 15/2 + 22/5 25/8x= 3/1 + 11/1 25/8x - 25/8= 14/1- 25/8 x=7/1-25/4 x=18/4 x= 4/12 Is this right?
