    the common denominator of 5/6 and 7/8 is 24, so multiply both sides of the equation (every term) by 24:

    24(5/6)x + 24(2) = 24(7/8)

    the denominators will cancel out so you have:

    4(5x) + 48 = 3(7)

    do the multiplication:

    20x + 48 = 21

    fractions have been eliminated, and if you want to continue to solve:

    20x = -27

    x = -27/20
