Okay, first, get the numbers a common denominator. The smallest denominator for 2 and 5 is 10. Multiply the left side by 2. Both the top and bottom have to be multiplied by 2 to keep the same fraction. you would get 2x+8/10. for the right side, the top and bottom have to be multiplied by 5. 5x+30/10 now you have: 2x+8/10 = 1- 5x+30/10 Multiply both sides by 10 to get rid of the fraction.  2x+8 = 10-5x+30 simplify 2x+8 = -5x +40 Get x alone.  7x+8 = 40 Subtract 8. 7x = 32 Divide by 7 x = 32/7
