can someone help me with solving this?
Solve it like any other equation - just add and subtract fractions.
(5/2)x + (1/4)x = (9/4) + x
(11/4)x = (9/4) + x
(7/4)x = (9/4)
I was collecting the like terms first and I ended up with 11/4x=9/4+x then I was stuck.
I ended up with this as the answer
Remember that x = (1/1)x = (4/4)x.
x = 9/7 is correct.
