So far I have x+1/2x+1/3x=22. 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 +..... $
thank you so much for help. I am enjoying this forum because it is helping me a lot to understand the problems.
