please can you help me solve the following equations and please can you show your method. thanks
1) 4x+3/5x6 = x1/x6
2) 4x5/16x = x+10/x6
thanks once again

If I solve it the way you typed it .....
1. LCD is 5x, so multiply each term by 5x
20x^2 + 3x^2  30x = 5x^2  5  30x
etc
Somehow I have a feeling you meant
(4x+3)/(5x6) = (x1)/(x6)
crossmultiply
5x^2  5x  6x + 6 = 4x^2  24x + 3x  18
x^2 + 10x + 24 = 0
(x+6)(x+4) = 0
x = 6 or x=4
Do the second one the same way
