\frac{3}{4}x+\frac{5}{8}=4x$$\\ Subtract \frac{3}{4}x from both sides to get$$ \frac{5}{8}=3\frac{1}{4}x$$\\ We can write 3\frac{1}{4} as the improper fraction: \frac{13}{4} so$$\frac{5}{8}=\frac{13}{4}x$$\\ Multiply both sides by \frac{4}{13} to get$$\frac{5}{8}\times\frac{4}{13}= x$$or$$x=\frac{5}{26}
