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

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#
