$1 \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

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

The problem: $\frac{1}{4} \left(x + 2\right) = \frac{5}{6}$

• Step 1:

$\frac{1}{4} \times \left(x + 2\right) = \frac{5}{6}$

• Step 2:

$\frac{x + 2}{4} = \frac{5}{6}$

• Step 3:

Here you will cross multiply. So it becomes:

$6 \left(x + 2\right) = 20$

• Step 4:

$6 x + 12 = 20$

• Step 5:

$6 x = 8$

• Step 6:

$x = \frac{8}{6}$
0r $x = 1 \frac{1}{3}$
