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

What are you trying to do?

Are they separate questions?

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
