  2x+3x14x2x=5x6x(x1)

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given expression is 2x+3x14x2x

Consider the expression as 2x+3x14x2x

This expression can re- written as,

  2x+3x14x2x=2x+3x14x(x1)

Take L.C.M.,

  2x+3x14x(x1)=2(x1)+3x4x(x1)=2x2+3x4x(x1)=5x6x(x1)

Therefore, 2x+3x14x2x=5x6x(x1)
