Use parentheses when writing your equation. Otherwise there could be a number of different interpretations.\[132 = \frac{1}{2}x + 2(x9)\] could be written 132=(1/2)x+2(x9) Or is it \[132 = \frac{1}{2x} + 2(x9)\]?

ah ok now I understand better. So first distribute 2 to x  9 2x  18 132 = 1/2x + 2x  18 Then combine like terms which is 1/2x + 2x 132 = 2 1/2x  18. Then add 18 to both sides. +18 +18  150 = 2 1/2x Then you divide. I got 60! Hope this helped!
