    Hey guys

    I couldnt figure out how to put the formula I made in MathType on here, so I'll just type it out manually

    ((2x-1)/(x+2)) = (4/5)

    Solve for x

    If anyone knows how to make it look like the real deal instead of what you would punch in your calculator can you let me know?

    Hello DHS1,

    \frac{2x-1}{x+2}=\frac{4}{5}

    Cross-multiply (essentially, multiply both sides by 5(x+2)

    10x-5=4x+8

    6x=13

    x=\frac{13}{6}
