You need to make it clear what you mean.
For example is it:
1
- x - 5 =
2
1
- x + 3 *(I can't write out the equation horizontally without the layout screwing up!)
4
I have no idea what to do with equations and fractions set out like this. Do i need to cancel them out of the equation before i make the first step to solving the unknown?
thanks
