# 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 1/6.

Let's solve the equation for x

**Explanation:**

x/2 + x/4 = 1/8

(2x + x) / 4 = 1/8 (Taking the LCM of the denominators 2 and 4 on LHS)

3x/4 = 1/8

x = 1/6
