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

9/7 though

Remember that x = (1/1)x = (4/4)x.

x = 9/7 is correct.
