    It's going to be, \[2x/2-x \] Simplify the denominator first and you will get \[2-x / 2x\] then cancel.

    okay good. Now you know that if a number stands alone it's actually divided by 1 right? like this \[(2-x)/1 /(2-x)/2x\] then apply the rule of multiplication which is for this case : Multiplying the lower part with the upper part and the ones in between together like this \[(2-x)(2x)/(2-x)(1)\] after that simplify by canceling the (2-x) from top and bottom and you will get 2x, sorry my mistake the first solution is wrong it should be 2x

    no one is bad at mathematics , the ones who are good at it did not understand it at first , but after trying and working hard they have managed to understand it and do well. Give yourself a chance to understand mathematics; in the end, everything around you, even with computers and electronics, include numbers and some mathematical formuals. Good luck :)
