First I would find a common denominator and add the two fractions on the left side. A common denominator is 20 so for the left side I get Hence the equation becomes
To make the fraction on the right equivalent to the fraction on the left I would need x to be 40 since 2/40 = 1/20 = 1/20. Hence x = 40. Now try your problem.
