I would change the - - to a +

Multiply out the fractions (1. x 2, 2. x 7) - remember to multiply both sides.

Make the x coefficients the same and then solve like normal simultaneous equations

2. times 7 by what

1. times two by what
2. times 7 by what
So the first equation (5x/2 + 1 = 10) multiply it by 2
The second equation (2x/7 + 3 = 2) multiply it by 7

1. 5x/2 + 1 = 11 then times 2 and 5 x 2 =10
2. 2x/7 - 3 = 2 then times 7 and 2 x 7 =14
what should I do next

Just solve from there:

5x + 2 = 20
2x + 21 = 14

Hmm, assuming that the equations are separate, this is correct?

are these equations linked in any way or are they separate questions?

Not sure... I’ve subbed this into my calculator which will solve algebra and it’s what it’s getting.

It’s saying that
1. x= 3.6
2. x = -3.5
