    9x-(7x+1/2)=3x+(1/2-X) 9x-7x=2x 2x+1/2=3x+1/2-x 2x+1/2=2x+1/2 2x=2x x=x

    \[9x -1(7x+\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }) = 3x + 1(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }-x)\] does that look nicer? :}

    9x-(7x+1/2)=3x+(1/2-X) lets say x=34 306-238+1/2=102+1/2-34 68+1/2=68+1/2 - lets say that x=113 1017-791+1/2)=339+1/2-113 226+1/2=226+1/2 i can do this all day, because X= ALL REAL NUMBERS

    multiply both sides by 7x to get \[-4 = -84x + 28x\] \[-4 = -56x\] \[0 = \frac{ -56x }{ -4 }\] 0 = 14x 0 = x

    @lharrell97 if x=x then it can be anything because you don't know the value of x so it could be an imaginary number or it could be elephant...not JUST all real numbers

    because you dont know the value of X, it could be any possible number. x could equal 3 billion or it could equal 2. the answer therefore is X= all real numbers... although i can see where you're coming from haha

    look like that? \[\frac{ x + 5 }{ 3 } =\frac{ x - 3 }{ 4 }\]
