The steps are as follows: Set the denominators equal, add the two terms on the right, cross multiply, then solve for x using factoring.

#### Explanation:

We begin by setting the denominator of the 2 equal to the rest of the terms in the equation. To do this, we can assume 2 to be equal to

Once this has been completed, it should come out to

To cross multiply, set the two terms you have set up your equation like this.

Moving all of the terms to one side of the equation and dividing by common multipliers results in the quadratic
