    slowly :D Why don't we bring \(\huge \frac1{2x^{\frac32}}\) to the left side like this... \[\Large \frac1{2x^{\frac32}}=1\] clear now? :)

    We basically added \[\huge \frac1{2x^{\frac32}}\] to both sides as per the addition property of equality.

    Well then, can you solve it from here?

    Never mind that for now. Why don't we multiply both sides by \[\Large 2x^{\frac32}\] That gives us... \[\Large 1 = 2x^{\frac32}\] And divide both sides by 2...

    \[x^{3/2} =1/2 \]

    true dat :) Now you can raise both sides to the \(\LARGE \frac23\) power (just to get rid of the exponent of x) You then get...?

    That gives you x. What about the right-hand side?

    Well, the best you can hope for is the ugly-looking \[\Large \left(\frac12\right)^{\frac23}\]
