Can someone please tell me where I have gone wrong here? I have to solve the following equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(3x - 7)/4 - (4x + 5)/2 = 3/4

I attempted to do it by muliplying boths sides by 4 to get rid of the denominators, leaving me with:

3x - 7 - 8x + 10 = 3

simplified: -5x + 3 = 3

which is clearly nonsense as that means -5x would equal 0.
