Carcass...I am getting answer as 5/6, please let me know the correct answer.


2x = 12/9 + 1/3
=>2x = 15/9
=?2x = 5/3
=> x = 5/6.

Correct if option is 5/6 or share me the correct solution.

Sorry there was a typo in the RHS

It is now fixed. It was this way

\(\frac{2x-1}{3}=\frac{12}{9}\)

\(18x - 9 = 36\)

\(18x = 45 = \frac{5}{2}\)

B is the Answer.

Thank you so much
