Answer

$x=-\frac{3}{4}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{3}{2}x+2=\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{2}x$ $\longrightarrow$ addition property of equality $\frac{3}{2}x+2-2+\frac{1}{2}x=\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{2}x-2+\frac{1}{2}x$ $\longrightarrow$ combine like terms $2x=-\frac{3}{2}$ $\longrightarrow$ multiplication property of equality $2x\div2=-\frac{3}{2}\div2$ $\longrightarrow$ simplify $x=-\frac{3}{4}$
