  3. because you should have typed 22/(5x)

  4. I didn't work the problem out. You said the answer was 11/4.

  5. 2x/5 I mean

    2/5x could be 2x/5 or 2/(5x)

  6. Assuming the usual carelessness, and considering the apparent level of difficulty, I'd say we have

    4 2/5 x = 12 1/10
    22/5 x = 121/10
    44/10 x = 121/10
    x = 121/44 = 2 33/44 = 2 3/4
    (B)
