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.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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}
