Could you help in the steps to this problem

5/2x + 1/4x = 5/4 + x


  • algebra -

    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.
