# Find and correct the errors in the statement: (4x + 5) / 4x = 5

**Solution:**

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

Given,

(4x + 5) / 4x = 5

Solving LHS we get,

(4x + 5) / 4x

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

= 1 + (5/4x)

But RHS is given as 5

Thus, L.H.S. ≠ R.H.S

The correct statement is (4x + 5) / 4x = 1 + (5 / 4x)
