Simplify both sides of the equation-5/2 x +3/4 x = -3/4Combine like terms(-5/2 x + 3/4 x )-7/4 x = -3/4-7/4 x = -3/4Multiply both sides by 4/(-7)(4/-7)*(-7/4 x ) = (4/-7 ) * ( -3/4 )x = 3/7

$-frac{5}{2}x+frac{3}{4}x=-frac{3}{4}\-frac{5 imes2}{2 imes2}x + frac{3}{4}x=-frac{3}{4}\frac{-10}{4}x+frac{3}{4}x=-frac{3}{4}\frac{-10+3}{4}x=-frac{3}{4}\-frac{7}{4}x=-frac{3}{4}\-frac{7}{4}x imes -4 =-frac{3}{4} imes -4\7x = 3\oxed{f{x =frac{3}{7}}}$
