    does the expression look like this? \[\frac{ 3x+2 }{ 8 }\]

    I think this might be asking you to split this into 2 fractions

    you can't solve there is no equal sign

    no, you cannot add the 2 to the 3x because they are different variables

    no. 3x and 2 aren't like terms, so they can't be combined \[\frac{ 3x+2 }{ 8 }=\frac{ 3x }{ 8 }+\frac{ 2 }{ 8 }\] then reduce 2/8

    hold on, let me think. Im trying to figure it out. im pretty sure this has to do with multiplying the fraction

    3x/8 + 2/8 is an equivalent sum to (3x + 2)/8
