Is that correct that the numerator of the right side is 2+12? or is that 2x+12 ?

yes it's correct. but the 2 is not part of the numerator..just the 12

So is it like this? \(\frac{4x}{x-3}=2+\frac{12}{x-3}\)

Ok, multiply the equation by \(x-3\) we get \(4x=2(x-3)+12\) \(4x=2x-6+12\) \(2x=6\) \(x=3\) But if we plug in back \(x=3\) to the original equation we are in trouble because we divide by zero. So the equation has no solution!.
