Who is asking: Student Level: Secondary Question: ^{(x1)}/_{3}  1 = ^{(x + 2)}/_{2} 

Hi, You have two fractions, one with a denominator of 3 and the other with a denominator of 2. The first thing I would do is to multiply both sides by 3 as this will eliminate one of the fractions. Multiplying both sides by 3 and simplifying gives Now you have only one fraction, with a denominator of 2. Multiply both sides by 2, simplify and solve for x. Make sure you check your answer, Penny
