    Hi

    Here's one to get you started.

    2x-11=13
    add 11: 2x=24
    divide by 2: x=12

    Now you try the rest and tell us where you get stuck :-)

    Right. For this one, one way of removing all the fractions is to multiply everything by the least common denominator.

    \dfrac{x}{4}- 1 = \dfrac23 + x

    Multiply by 12;


    3x- 12 = 8 + 12x

    Now, bring all the x on one side and the rest on the other side. Can you complete it now?
