#1**+1 **

I'm assuming that the question is asking to find the answer to (x + 25)/x = 10

To find the answer you must first multiply both sides by x to remove the denominator of x in the fraction, leaving you with x + 25 = 10x

Next, subtract x from both sides in order to get all your x's on the same side: 25 = 9x

Lastly, just divide both sides by 9 to remove the coefficient of x, leaving you with an answer of **x = 25/9 **or **2 7/9**

NO!, that is NOT right:

x+25/x = 10 Put the LHS over the common denominator x

[x^2 + 25] / x = 10 Cross multiply

x^2 + 25 = 10x Subtract 10x from both sides

x^2 - 10x + 25 =0 Write the LHS as a square

(x - 5)^2 = 0 Take the square of both sides

x - 5 = 0 Add 5 to both sides

x = 5 - Both roots are the same

x = 5

Sum = 5 + 5 =10
