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

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

4. ## Thank you

It was the second equation, x=24.

Thanks again.
