What is the solution to the rational equation x / 2x + 1 + 1 / 4 = 2 / 2x + 1?

• Algebra 2 -

is the equaton suppose to look like this

(x/2x) + 1 + 1/4 = (2/2x) + 1 ?

if it is then what you do is simplify ffirst

(x/2x) = 1/2 cause x cancel

(1/2) + 1 +(1/4) = (2/2x) + 1

and (2/2x) =(1/x)

(1/2) + 1 + (1/4) = (1/x) + 1

1 + (3/4) = (1/x) + 1

subtract 1 from both side

(3/4) = (1/x) and then multiply x to get rid of it from the denominator

(3/4)x = 1

x= (4/3)
