are you familiar with LCD? least common denominator?
atlas

Take LCM of denominator and simplify the equation into a quadratic form.............You can solve it them

\[\left\{ \frac{ 5 }{ x } + 2 = \frac{ x }{ 4 }\right\}\] multiply both sides by the LCD, then simplify.
anonymous
  • anonymous
denominators are x and 4, so the LCD is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the Lcd is 4 right?
atlas
  • atlas
Nope...........The LCD should get divided by both x and 4.........Now make your guess
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait i kinda confused. so i would divide instead of times
atlas
  • atlas
The LCD that you choose for multiplying should be divisible by both 4 and x
anonymous
  • anonymous
but what am i doing with the 2? can you like draw a pic to help me out?
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i dont know if i am suppose to divide or multiply the whole equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
the first thing to do is make the denominators to 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it 2 over 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
how bout 5/x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so its 5/x + 2/1

1/2 -----> to make the denominator 1 is to multiply by 2 .... 1/x ..... just multiply by x
anonymous
  • anonymous
so in your problem we have denominators x and 4, to make it 1, we should multiply them by 4 and x
