assuming those are 3 terms and not 2 you should start by noting all restrictions for x. In this case, x cannot be 0 because we can't divide by 0. multiply both sides by the lcm (2x) 9 + 2x = 8 ===> 2x = -1 ===> x = -1/2

Do you mean 9/(2x+1)=4/x?

Cross multiplication gives,

9x = 4(2x+1)

9x = 8x + 4

x = 4 <==Answer
