Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{9}{x}+2=\frac{4}{5}\] We notice that in the denominator there is x and 5. So we multiply 5x to both the sides \[5x \times (\frac{9}{x}+2)=5x \times \frac{4}{5}\] Can you tell what we'll get now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[5 \cancel{x} \times \frac{9}{\cancel{x}}+ 5x \times 2 = \cancel{5}x \times \frac{4}{\cancel{5}}\]
