    \[\frac{ 14 }{ 3x } + \frac{ x + 5 }{ 3x } = \frac{ 14 + x + 5 }{ 3x }\] combine like terms\[\frac{ 19 + x }{ 3x } = \frac{ 19 }{ 3x } + \frac{ x }{ 3x }\]

    \[\frac{ 19 + x }{ 3x } or \frac{ 19 }{ 3x } + \frac{ x }{ 3x } \]

    19/3x + x/3x that's easier to type (19 + x)/3x they're the same thing.
