    Bring to a common denominator and simplify.

    [tex]\frac{3-2x}/{5} - \frac{x-7}/{6}\leq 2[\math]

    many thanks

    \frac{3 - 2x}{5} - \frac{x - 7}{6} \leq 2

    \frac{6(3 - 2x)}{30} - \frac{5(x - 7)}{30} \leq 2

    18 - 12x - 5x + 35 \leq 60

    53 - 17x \leq 60

    -17x \leq 7

    x \geq -\frac{7}{17}.

    If writing a fraction you don't put a slash in between the curly brackets.
