If you would like to solve the equation 13 - 3 / 2 * x = 34, you can do this using the following steps:
13 - 3 / 2 * x = 34
13 - 34 = 3 / 2 * x
- 21 = 3 / 2 * x /* 2/3
x = - 21 * 2 / 3
x = - 14
The correct result would be - 14.

First, multiply both sides by 2 to get rid of the fraction.
2(13-3/2x=34)
26-3x=68
-26 -26 isolate x
-3x=42
÷-3 ÷-3 isolate x
x = -14
Hope this helps!
