When dealing with an expression that has a linear expression as the numerator and a constant number as the denominator, simply divide each term in the numerator by the number in the denominator. The expression (2*x* + 7)รท5 is equivalent to (2*x*/5)
+ (7/5), which, by the way, it is expressed as a sum.
