x/[5(x+2)] + (x-3)/(x+2) = 7/5

**drwls**, Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 7:41amMultiply both sides of the equation by (x+2) to get the x term out of the denominators. Then combine terms and use common denominators.

(x/5) + (x-3) = (7/5)(x+2) = (7/5)x + 7/10

(12/10)x - 28/10 = (14/10)x + 7/10

(2/10)x = -35/10

2x = -35

x = -17 1/2
