\(\displaystyle \dfrac{2}{x} + \dfrac{10}{2y}\)

\(\displaystyle \dfrac{(2)(2y) + (x)(10)}{(x)(2y)} = \dfrac{(2)(2y)}{(x)(2y)} + \dfrac{(x)(10)}{(x)(2y)}\)

\(\displaystyle \frac{2}{x}+\frac{10}{2y}=\frac{2}{x}+\frac{5}{y}=\frac{5x+2y}{xy}\)

Thanks for correcting me. You now know why an extensive algebra review is needed.

Don't worry about it. I messed up, too. I need a serious review of algebra. I purchased a college algebra textbook by Michael Sullivan. I will post many algebra questions after completing my trigonometry self-study.Oh, wait! I just now noticed I got the same answer as where I started!
