    yes right \[\huge\rm \frac{ 3(x+6)+2(x+2) }{ 6 }=9\] multiply the numerator of first fraction by the denominator of 2nd fraction multiply the numerator of 2nd fraction by the denominator of 1st fraction 1st) multiply both sides by 6 2nd) distribute parentheses by outside number

    \[\frac{ x+6 }{ 2 }+\frac{ x+2 }{ 3 }=\frac{9}{\color{red}{1}}\]This might help, too!

    \[\frac{ 5x+22 }{ 6 }=9\] \[6\times9=54\] \[54-22=32\] \[32\div5=\frac{ 32 }{ 5 }\]

    As long as you understand the method, everything works. I was a little confused at first since you hadnt written out your steps but after solving it,it looks good :)
