I have the following problem to solve and I am not sure if I have the correct answer. Could you let me know if I do?

1/x+5+2=5/x+5

my answer: -3

your answer is incorretct ..it should be x=2

u just have to practice more often ..

Combine like terms first by adding or subtracting terms from both sides of the equation.

1/x+5+2=5/x+5

2 = 4/x

I mentioned this in response to a later post. Ihope hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
