  1. Please use parentheses to reduce ambiguity in the equations.For example,
    5/(4x) is not the same as (5/4)*x.

  2. Get a common denomiatore for the x terms and collect them on one side of the equation.

    5/4 x + 1/8 x - x = (10 +1 -8)x/8 = 3x/8. That gives you

    3/8 x = 5/8

    Then multiply both sides of the equation by 8/3
