I have the answer but I don't know how to get it:\[x=\frac{1}{a+1}\]

\[a ^{2}x+a2=ax+2x\] multiply them first then put all the a's to one side..

Well I shouldn't say not sure where to start I guess.. I got: \[a(ax−x+1)=x(x+2)\]This is where I'm actually stuck at.

x=2a/a^2a2 > factor the denominator a^2a2 x=  (2+a)/(a+1)(a2) x=1/(a+1)

Yea I had just tried that way before asking on here and didn't think about factoring the a^2a2 so thats where I stopped and tried a different way. Thanks though
