**Rachel**, Friday, October 30, 2009 at 4:39pmstart by multiplying by the lowest common denominator (in this case 4), simplify, then solve.

4(x/2) + 4(x/4)= 1

4/2=2 and 4/4 =1, therefore:

2x + x = 1

3x = 1

(3x)/3 = 1/3

x= 1/3

**Reiny**, Friday, October 30, 2009 at 4:48pmRachel forgot to multiply the right side by 4, her equation should have been

2x + x = 4

3x = 4

x = 4/3 or 1 1/3
