Have I solved this equation correctly? I don't think I have as I can't imagine the value of x being a recurring number.
4x - 1/3 - 2x + 7/6 = 5/2
I have worked it out as follows:
6(4x - 1) -3 (2x + 7) = 30/2
(here i have multiplied the right side by 6 as this is the LCM of 6 + 3.
24x - 6 - 6x - 21 = 15
18x - 27 = 15
18x = 42
x = 2.3333^{r}
4x - 1/3 - 2x + 7/6 = 5/2
