In order to solve this, we need to "balance the equation." First, let's take the true equation 5 = 5, which we can write as (5) = (5). The brackets simply indicate what the original "elements" of the equation were as a group. Next, let's take the false statement (5) -1 = 5, which we can balance by writing (5) -1 = (5) - 1. We have used the same procedure on both sides.

Split each side in half.

To solve the equation 3x + 1 = 1/2, you would first subtract 1 from both sides to isolate the term with the variable. This gives you 3x = 1/2 - 1. Next, you would simplify the right side to obtain 3x = -1/2. Finally, you would divide both sides by 3 to solve for x, resulting in x = -1/6.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
