Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0on taking the LCM \[\frac{ \frac{ 2  (x +2 )}{ 2(x+2) } }{ x }\] \[\frac{ \frac{ 2  x 2 }{ 2(x+2) } }{ x }\] \[\frac{ \frac{  x }{ 2(x+2) } }{ x }\]\[\frac{ x }{ 2(x2) } \div x\] \[[\frac{ x }{ 2(x2) } \times \frac{ 1 }{ x }]\] \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2(x2) }\] is the answer, you can simplify further ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0after that you can rite this equation similarly as \frac{ x }{ 2(x2) } \div x
