    on taking the LCM \[\frac{ \frac{ 2 - (x +2 )}{ 2(x+2) } }{ x }\] \[\frac{ \frac{ 2 - x -2 }{ 2(x+2) } }{ x }\] \[\frac{ \frac{ - x }{ 2(x+2) } }{ x }\]\[\frac{ -x }{ 2(x-2) } \div x\] \[[\frac{ -x }{ 2(x-2) } \times \frac{ 1 }{ x }]\] \[\frac{ -1 }{ 2(x-2) }\] is the answer, you can simplify further ;)

    after that you can rite this equation similarly as \frac{ -x }{ 2(x-2) } \div x
