Same thing as the other solution it just looks different.

I am presenting this solution solely to demonstrate that one situation may take on several forms but still have the same inherent value.

To simplify the expression (20+40x)/(20x), we can first factor out a common factor of 20 from the numerator:

(20+40x)/(20x) = 20(1+2x)/(20x)

Next, we can cancel out the common factor of 20 between the numerator and denominator:

20(1+2x)/(20x) = (1+2x)/x

To find the restrictions, we need to identify any values of x that would make the denominator equal to zero. In this case, the denominator is x. Therefore, the restriction is that x cannot be equal to zero.
