Answer

The first step we should take to solve the equation is to multiply both sides by the LCD, x.

Work Step by Step

The first step we should take to solve the equation is to multiply both sides by the LCD, x. $\frac{14}{x}=x-5$ $x(\frac{14}{x})=x(x-5)$ $14= x^{2}-5x$ From here you can move all terms to one side (in order to set the equation to zero) and solve from there.
