**Andrew**, Sunday, September 5, 2010 at 4:10am1. find a common multiple for the denominators of both fractions.

2. combine the fractions together. do not expand the numerator first.

3. cross multiply.

**drwls**, Sunday, September 5, 2010 at 8:33amHere is a better way.

Perform the indicated multiplications and combine terms

(2/5)(20x+5) - (1/2)(8-4x) = 38

8x +2 -4 +2x = 38

10x = 40

x = 4
