    making demoninators the same

    With algebraic fractions using different denomonators say

    x + 6 - 3 = 0
    x x -4

    Could somebody please advise the correct method used to make both the denominators the same?

    Thanks

    \frac{x+6}{x} - \frac{3}{x-4} = 0

    \frac{(x-4)(x+6)}{x(x-4)} - \frac{3x}{x(x-4)} = 0
