    i just added the fractions in numerator.

    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 ;)

    on solving i got numerator = -x/2(x-2) you get it?

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

    \[\frac{ -x }{ 2(x-2) } \div x \]you get it?

    if i write \[\frac{ 5 }{ 6 } = 5 \div 6 = 5 \times \frac{ 1 }{ 6 }\]

    i just wrote it in other way and then -x/x = -1 you get the answer :)
