    multiply all three terms by \((x+5)(x+2)\) and tell me what you have.

    \(\dfrac{2}{x+2}+\dfrac{1}{5}=\dfrac{6}{x+5}\\(x+2)(x+5)\dfrac{2}{x+2}+(x+2)(x+5)\dfrac{1}{5}=(x+2)(x+5)\dfrac{6}{x+5}\\ \cancel{(x+2)}(x+5)\dfrac{2}{\cancel{(x+2)}}+(x+2)(x+5)\dfrac{1}{5}=(x+2)\cancel{(x+5)}\dfrac{6}{\cancel{(x+5)}}\\ (x+5)2+(x+5)(x+2)\frac{1}{5}=(x+2)6\)

    \( 2(x+5)+(x+5)(x+2)\frac{1}{5}=6(x+2)\)
