How would you solve: 1/2 + 1/3 = 1/x ? Can anyone help guide me through it so I can figure out how to do the others? Thanks.

LCM of 2 and 3 = 6 only

Now, multiply the LCM of 2 and 3 both sides : \((\cfrac{1}{2} +\cfrac{1}{3})\times \color{blue}{6} = \cfrac{1}{x} \times \color{blue}{ 6}\)

oh ok I see so once we multiply LCM we would have 3/6 + 2/6 = 1/x which equals 5/6 = 1/x right?
