    \[6-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }x+\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+5\]\[6\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }x=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+5\]\[1\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }x=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x\]\[2\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }-\frac{ 6 }{ 4 }x=x\]\[2\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }=\frac{ 10 }{ 4 }x\]\[\frac{ 8 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 10 }{ 4 }x\]\[8=\frac{ 30 }{ 4 }x\]\[32=30x\]

    Thanks for the help! but yes it's not there... I just re-read it. The question wants to know which number can each term of the equation be multiplied by to eliminate the fractions before actually solving it.

    Hopefully, I'll let you know. Sucks because they don't let you know (the program I am in) it just goes toward your grade.

    i usually take online classes from edx but they are at calculus and above level. the reason why i tell you 12 is theres 3 fractions in this equation , 3/4, 1/3, 1/2. only 12 is the LCM of this 3 denominator

    Not that bad, 1 more year makes a great difference. You could spend that year doing other things but instead using it there is best. And like you said things you will use and it's fun... it's worth your time :)
