#### 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.
