Problem 1

What value of $x$ satisfies \[x- \frac{3}{4} = \frac{5}{12} - \frac{1}{3}?\]

$\textbf{(A)}\ -\frac{2}{3}\qquad\textbf{(B)}\ \frac{7}{36}\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ \frac{7}{12}\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ \frac{2}{3}\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ \frac{5}{6}$

Solution

Adding $\frac{3}{4}$ to both sides, $x= \frac{5}{12} - \frac{1}{3} + \frac{3}{4} = \frac{5}{12} - \frac{4}{12} + \frac{9}{12}=\boxed{\text{(E) }\frac{5}{6}}$.
