    First, get rid of the denominator, multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator. Here's how: x-2 ——— • 2 = -3 • 2 2

    We are multiplying both sides by its inverse. Understand?

    Think of PEMDAS, but undo each operation on the side, and do the same operation on the right

    We are multiplying both sides by 2 because that's the denominator.

    We must get rid of the fraction, so in order to do that, multiply it by its inverse: The inverse of 1/2 is 2/1

    Multiplication and diversion cancel just like addition and subtraction
