"Fraction:

Let x be the numerator.

Equation:

Solution:

The coefficient of x is 1 so 1x + 1x = 2x.

Then apply additive inverse both sides to 5.

Simplify: 5 - 5 = 0 and 9 - 5 = 0

Then divide both sides of the equation by 2 so that the x will only have 1 coefficient.

Evaluate: 2 ÷ 2 = 1x or x and 4 ÷ 2 = 2.

Substitute the value of x which is 2 to the fraction.

Answer:

I am 2/7 fraction.

That's all thank you. :)"
