Answer:

x = 18

Step-by-step explanation:

1/2 x - 7 = 1/3 (x - 12)           Remove the brackets on the right

1/2x - 7 = 1/3 x - 12*1/3

1/2x - 7 = 1/3 x - 4               Subtract 1/3 x from both sides

1/2x - 1/3x - 7 = - 4             Combine like terms on the left

1/6x - 7 = - 4                       Add 7 to both sides

1/6 x = - 4  + 7                    Combine the right side

1/6 x = 3                             Multiply both sides by 6

6 * 1/6x = 3*6

x = 18
