Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!18) 1/2(4d-2)=d+5 (4d-2)/2=d+5 2(2d-1)/2=d+5 now cancel the 2 in the denominator & numerator opf the fraction. 2d-1=d+5 2d-d=5+1 d=6 answer. proof (4*6-2)/2=6+5 (24-2)/2=11 22/2=11 11=11 Answer by Prithwis(166)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1/2(4d-2)=d+5 => 2d-1=d+5 [multiply the 1/2] => d-1=5 [subtract d from both sides] => d=6 [add 1 to each sides] so, d=6 is the answer.
