I'm taking a step back as I've found a concept I'm struggling with. If I have an equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2(x-1)/3 = (x/4)+1

I've been told I need to multiply by 12 to give me:

8(x-1) = 3x+12

However I'm struggling with the multiplication of fractions in his instance. Can anyone advise me how that calculation works? I understand the remainder of the working. Thanks :)
