Answer

x = 2

Work Step by Step

$\frac{3}{4}x - \frac{1}{2} = 1$ Add $\frac{1}{2}$ to both sides: $\frac{3}{4}x = 1 \frac{1}{2}$ Multiply both sides by reciprocal of coefficient, $\frac{4}{3}$: $\frac{4}{3}(\frac{3}{4}x) = (1 \frac{1}{2})\frac{4}{3}$ Simplify: x = $(\frac{3}{2})\frac{4}{3}$ x = 2
