    after doing all the maths, you will get x = 5/[-4]

    wait, is the x divided by x and then a 5 is subtracted or, is the x divided by x-5???

    oh, so x is the top and the x-5 is at the bottom, right? and the same goes for the 5/x-5 right? because if that is so, then the answer is different

    there is a VERY big difference between [x/x-5] and [x/(x-5)]
