Hi guys

I'm super confused I haven't done algebra since high school and need to help a kid out. can someone please show me step by step how to do the following:
x           x+4           2                      2x  -  2
-- + ----- - --- = - ---------
2 3 1 6

I've got:

3x + 2x + 8 - 12 -2x + 2
------------------- = --------------
6 6

7x = 6

x = (6/7)
