Step 1
We have to simplify the given expression:
$\frac{5x}{6}+\frac{x}{4}$
In addition of fraction we do take LCM of the denominators of those fraction,
suppose we have given addition as:
$\frac{a}{b}+\frac{c}{d}$
Then we need to take LCM of denominators b and d, so that
$\frac{a}{b}+\frac{c}{d}=\frac{ad+bc}{bd}$
Step 2
Here taking LCM of denominators by
