Answer:

#1 1/3#

Explanation:

There are many methods that can be used. Today, however, I will be showing 1 method only.

The problem: #1/4(x+2) = 5/6#

  • Step 1:

    #1/4 xx (x+2) = 5/6#

  • Step 2:

    # (x+2)/4 = 5/6#

  • Step 3:

    Here you will cross multiply. So it becomes:

    #6(x+2) = 20#

  • Step 4:

    #6x+12 = 20#

  • Step 5:

    #6x = 8#

  • Step 6:

    #x = 8/6#
    0r #x = 1 1/3#
