I got the answer for these 2 questions, but I need to verify them, the questions are 2x-3(1-4x)=2(1+7x)-5 and x/2+1=x/3+2 Thank you for the help much appreciated. You don't have to show the work.

Sure: $\frac{x}{2}+1=\frac{x}{3}+2$ Subtract 1 from both sides: $\frac{x}{2}=\frac{x}{3}+1=\frac{x+3}{3}$ Cross-multiply: $3x=2(x+3)=2x+6$ Subtract 2x from both sides: $x=6$
