# Evaluate: /(x) 4+10 = /(1) 20

## Expression: $$\frac { x } { 4 } + 10 = \frac { 1 } { 20 }$$

Multiply both sides of the equation by $20$, the least common multiple of $4,20$.

$$5x+200=1$$

Subtract $200$ from both sides.

$$5x=1-200$$

Subtract $200$ from $1$ to get $-199$.

$$5x=-199$$

Divide both sides by $5$.

$$x=\frac{-199}{5}$$

Fraction $\frac{-199}{5}$ can be rewritten as $-\frac{199}{5}$ by extracting the negative sign.

$$x=-\frac{199}{5}$$
