solve like this (2x/5 +x/5) +4/51 =3x/5+4/51 here we will take the LCM of 3x/5+4/5 =(3x+4)/51 =(3x+45)/5 =(3x1)/5

Rearrange to combine x terms together ( commutative ) 2x/ 5 + x/5 = 3x/ 5 then, the rest is constant: 1 + 4/5 = 5/5 + 4/5

@Faman39 Pretend x terms are candies, constant numbers are cookies you want to sort them out, so it'll be easier to combine together!

Do you know that in order to combine 1 + 4/5, you need to convert into same denominator?
