    5/6x=-2/18

    multiply LHS by 3/3

    15/18x = -2/18

    multiply both sides by 18

    15x = -2

    divide both sides by 15

    x = -2/15

    The goal is to use algebraic techniques to get x all by itself on one side of the equal sign and everything else on the other side.

    5/6x = - 2/18 is

    15/18x = - 2/18

    x = - 17/18.

    5/6x = -2/18

    12x = -90

    x = -7 1/2

    multiply both sides by the multiplicative inverse of the coefficient of x..x = (6/5) ( - 2 / 18 ) = - 2 / 15

    ambiguous

    first guess: (5/6)x = –2/18

    x = –(2/18)(6/5) = –(2/3)(1/5) = –2/15

    second guess

    5/(6x) = –2/18

    –12x = 90

    x = –7.5

    5/6=15/18

    (15/18)x = -2/18

    15x=-2

    x=...
