**1. The problem statement:**

Pretty straight forward:

f(x)=1/x

Simplify 2f(x)+3

Evidently, the answer is (2+3x)/x but I don't know how to find that,

**2. Homework Equations :**

None, as far as I know

**3. The Attempt at a Solution :**

2f(x)+3 = 2(1/x) + 3 = 2/x + 3

I'm of course missing some simple step or identity that could help me, but I can't come up with any thoughts on how to navigate to the correct answer.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!
