# How do you solve #5/(x+2)>5/x + 2/3x#?

##### 1 Answer

To work with fractions, our first goal needs to be to find a common denominator.

Let's combine the components on the right of the sign. To do that, we need them to have the same denominator.

Let's multiply

*combine*

*simplify*

*combine*

Now let's put that back into the expression:L

Now, we need to get the same denominator again. Luckily, we already know how to do that!

*simplify*

*multiply both sides by #(3x^2+6x)#*

*Subtract #15x# on both sides*

*factor out a #2#*

*divide by #2# on both sides*
