# 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

**Explanation:**

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
