Multiply each term on both sides of the equation by: X/1

Practice writing out the X/1 multiplied by each term on both sides.

Do each multiplication by hand. After that collect any like terms (there aren’t any)

Practice writing out any algebraic steps and completing each individual algebraic calculation.

For your information the textbook really should not have skipped this step unless it’s university calculus 1 or higher. Anything in high school should be showing steps like algebraically multiplying each term on both sides of the equation by X/1

Edit: why is this downvoted? Man screw this dumb sub I’m done trying to help random people
