Solve x/2 + x/4 = 1/8
An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.
Answer: The value of x is 1/8
Let's solve the equation for x
x/2 + x/4 = 1/8
(4x + 2x) / 8 = 1/8 (Taking the LCM of the denominators 2 and 4 on LHS)
6x = 1 (Cancelling 8 in the denominators of LHS and RHS)
x = 1/6
