well, let's try a LCD of\[(x^22)(x4)\]What we get is\[\frac{3x+4}{x^22}  \frac{2}{x4}=\frac{(3x+4)(x4)2(x^22)}{(x^22)(x4)}\]

if there was an equal sign rather than the subtraction sign between the two only then you can do that. That is why this question is puzzling. you are cross multiplying...is that a legal move?

@mellylol, am I cross multiplying? I thought I was coming up with a LCD. What should I have done?
