As long as you apply the same to both sides, we can do anything because we have an equation.

To cancel terms, multiply each one by the denominators' LCM.

The equation is now as follows:

To solve the equation 1/2 + 2/x = 1/x, we can start by getting rid of the denominators. Multiply every term in the equation by the least common denominator (LCD), which is 2x. This gives us 2x(1/2) + 2x(2/x) = 2x(1/x). Simplifying each term, we have x + 4 = 2. Next, subtract 4 from both sides of the equation to isolate the variable x. This gives us x = -2. Therefore, the solution to the equation is x = -2.
