What is the solution to the equation?

3x + (4/5) = 7 - 2x

3x + (4/5) = 7 - 2x

**Multiply entire equation by least common denominator, 5, to eliminate fraction.**

5[3x + (4/5) = 7 - 2x] {multiplied entire equation by 5}

15x + 4 = 35 - 10x {multiplied.......and no more fraction!}

25x = 31 {added 10x and subtracted 4 from each side}

**x = 31/25**{divided each side by 25}
