    1/x = 1/6 + 1/4

    I tried the rule and failed 1 * 4 + 1 * 6/6* 4

    10/24 doesn't make much sense

    Unless we can simplify it or something

    \[\frac{ 1 }{ x } = \frac{ 1 }{ 6 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }\] this?

    \[\frac{ 1 * 6 + 1 * 4 }{ 6 * 4 } = \frac{ 10 }{ 24 }\]

    However, my book says \[\frac{ 2 + 3 }{ 12 }\]

    remember you have 1/x =... not x = ...

    \[\frac{ 1 }{ x } = \frac{ 1 }{ 6 } + \frac{ 1 }{ 4 } \implies \frac{ 1 }{ x } = \frac{ 10 }{ 24 } \implies \frac{ 24 }{ 10 } = x\]

    There we go, the answer should be x=12/5

    \\[2\frac{ 2 }{ 5}\][\frac{ 12 }{ 5}\] Since 5 goes into 12 two times with a remainder of 2, I can say
