write it like this ..... x+ x/2 + x/3 = 22 or

$\displaystyle x+\frac {x}{2} +\frac {x}{3} = 22 $

that way someone can think you wrote ... x+ 1/(2x) + 1 /(3x) ....

it's the same as the another one that you post ... just this one multiply with 6

$\displaystyle 6x +..... $ - Sep 20th 2010, 02:25 PMfc1123
