They multiplied both sides of the equation by the least common denominator, which in this case would be
Hi, all. Could you please explain to me how this is done? I don't understand.
Example 1.Solve for x:Again, when solving an equation with fractions, the very next statement you write -- the next line -- should have no fractions.
1
2x+ 1
x − 1= 1
2(x − 1)Solution. The LCM is 2x(x −1). Here is the cleared equation: x − 1 + 2x = x. Each numerator has been multiplied by those factors of the LCM that are missing from its denominator. The solution follows: 2x = 1 x = 1

Thanks.
