There is nothing to solve !!  We can simplify it a bit?

 

Simplify the following:
x/4 - (5 y)/2 + 3/x

 

Put each term in x/4 - (5 y)/2 + 3/x over the common denominator 4 x: x/4 - (5 y)/2 + 3/x = x^2/(4 x) - (10 x y)/(4 x) + 12/(4 x):
x^2/(4 x) - (10 x y)/(4 x) + 12/(4 x)

x^2/(4 x) - (10 x y)/(4 x) + 12/(4 x) = (x^2 - 10 x y + 12)/(4 x):


(x^2 - 10xy + 12)/(4x)
