    so u must have got : \(\frac{a+b}{b}=\frac{c+d}{d}\)------->(1) right? Step 2: subtract 1 from both sides: \(\frac{a}{b}-1=\frac{c}{d}-1\) \(\frac{a-b}{b}=\frac{c-d}{d}\)------->(2) got step 2 ??

    ofcourse we can: if x=y and w=z after dividing we get (x/w)=(y/z) try dividing here. if u don't get, i'll show that step.
