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?

As long as the numerator is the same as denom. , the result is 1
