    ummm, use paranthesis instead of putting the numbers above one another...

    do you mean:

    (4+5)/(x+6)=1

    or

    (4/x)+(5/6)=1

    do you mean:

    (4+5)/(x+6)=1

    or

    (4/x)+(5/6)=1

    If equation is (4+5) / (x+6) = 1 then solution is:

    4+5=(x+6)*1
    9=x+6
    x=3


    If equation is (4/x)+(5/6)=1 then solution is:

    (24+5x) / (6x) = 1
    24+5x=6x
    24=6x-5x
    x=24
