1/2x - 8 = -3/2x + 2 -- get rid of fractions by multiplying by common denominator of 2 x - 16 = -3x + 4 x + 3x = 4 + 16 4x = 20 x = 20/4 x = 5

Its the way the question is written..... Is it : (1/2x) - 8 = (-3/2x) + 2 or 1/(2x - 8) = -3/(2x + 2)

just remember, if you have a problem like this...with fractions, you can get rid of the fractions by multiplying everything by the common denominator

or you can just solve it leaving the fractions in....whatever is easiest for you
