I thought when you multiplied it by 2 then the two in the denominator canceled out and you ended up with x+x/4=10. I'm not sure what i did on my paper. But I ended u pwith 20/3.

@linearoperator So basically what I'm doing is instead of having 1/2 I now have 2/4 which is the same just not simplified and then adding it? I didn't think of doing that. When it comes to math there's sometimes so many possibilities as to what you can do. Anyways. Imma go back to homework., Thank you both.
