9x+64x=8

2

9 x + 6  4x = 8
9 x  4 x = 8  6
5 x = 2 Divide both sides with 5
x = 2 / 5 
* Multiply 2 with 8 to get rid of the 2.
9x + 6  4x = 16
5x + 6 = 16
 6 = 6
_________________
5x = 10
x = 2 
If it is the whole entire top over 2 then its different.
> Multiply by 1/2, which will cancel out the denominator. Then it will leave you with:
9x + 6  4x = 8
5x + 6 = 8
5x = 2
x = 2/5
