first you need to extract the value of x on the denominator
4x + 5 = 0
4x = 5
x = 5/4

Now write it like long division, except eliminate the x's and just write the coefficcients like you write synthetic division.

then you drop the 4, do (5/4)*4 and put that under 7 and subtract or add?

depends on the sign..if it is negative you subtract.. if positive, you add..

if both of them possess the same sign then you add them then copy the sign..

5/4 * 12 = 15 so 11 + 15 = 4
