Could you help in the steps to this problem
5/2x + 1/4x = 5/4 + x
solve

All of the denominators in the equation have a common factor 4, so multiply both sides of the equation by that.
4( 5/2x + 1/4x = 5/4 + x )
10x + x = 5 + 4x
Bring the variables to one side of the equation and all the constants to the other side and solve for x.
