Is the equation one of the following?

. . . . .$\mbox{a) }\,1\, +\, \frac{3}{5}(q\, -\, 4)\, =\, \frac{2}{5(q\, +\, 1)}$

. . . . .$\mbox{b) }\,1\, +\, \frac{3}{5(q\, -\, 4)}\, =\, \frac{2}{5}(q\, +\, 1)$

. . . . .$\mbox{c) }\,1\, +\, \frac{3}{5(q\, -\, 4)}\, =\, \frac{2}{5(q\, +\, 1)}$

. . . . .$\mbox{d) }\,1\, +\, \frac{3}{5}(q\, -\, 4)\, =\, \frac{2}{5}(q\, +\, 1)$

Thank you!

If he used the parentheses right it is d, cause...
a = 1+3/5(q-4)=2/(5(q+1))
b = 1+3/(5(q-4))=2/5(q+1)
c = 1+3/(5(q-4))=2/(5(q+1))
d = 1+3/5(q-4)=2/5(q+1)
I'd suggest you assume they know what they're asking

Btw, let me give the answer to people who still want this answer or the way to do this type of equation.
1+3/5(q-4)=2/5(q+1)
1+3/5q-12/5=2/5q+2/5
3/5q-7/5=2/5q+2/5
3/5q=2/5q+9/5
1/5q=9/5
q=45/5
q=9
