Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So x is standing in the denominators on the left side? Then you should multiply by x and solve the emerging quadratic equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the x isn't actually in the denominators, i just couldnt type it to show that they are next to the fractions. i'm guessing in order to add the 5/2 x to 1/4 x, i have to change it to 10/4 x + 1/4 x?
