Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1/(3x-12)=1/(2x-12)

1/(3x-12)-1/(2x-12) find a common base so we multiply each side

(2x-12)-(3x-12) / (3x-12)(2x-12) =0

(2x-12-3x+12)=0

-x=0

x=0

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
