\[\Large \frac{x+1}{5}={x1\over2}\] Be more specific next time. Use parenthesis or the equation editor.

Multiply both sides by \(5\cdot2\).

Ah, then you should have typed it like: (x+1)/5 = (x1)/2. Careful with parentheses usage. So, when you crossmultiply (not cross product  that's a vector term), you get: \[ \dfrac {x+1}{5} = \dfrac {x1}{2} \rightarrow 2(x+1) = 5(x1) \rightarrow 2x + 2 = 5x  5 \rightarrow 3x = 7, \] so you're right. It's a decimal. @goformit100 Spamming != Good. ;) @JessicaO Remember what muntoo and I said  be specific. ;)
