First, be careful with signs. When you move the 7/8x from one side to the other you have to subtract it from both sides, so on the left side you end up with -5/8x - 7/8x, or -12/8x. Then subtract the 1/2 from both sides.

Next, multiply both sides by -1 so your x is positive, simplify the 12/8, and you'll find you have a common denominator on both sides that you can get rid of. The rest should be obvious and easy!

Exactly...multiply both sides by 2 once you have the common denominator. Nice job!
