**complete each statement.**

**If $\frac{a}{b}=\frac{5-x}{x}$**** then $\frac{a+b}{b}=?$**

The final answer is,$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{5-x}{x}\Rightarrow \frac{a+b}{b}=\frac{5}{x}$

The given proportion is,

$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{5-x}{x}$

It is given that,$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{5-x}{x}$

$\frac{a}{b}+1=\frac{5-x}{x}+1$

$\frac{a+b}{b}=\frac{5-x+x}{x}=\frac{5}{x}$

So,

$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{5-x}{x}\Rightarrow \frac{a+b}{b}=\frac{5}{x}$

Therefore, the final answer is$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{5-x}{x}\Rightarrow \frac{a+b}{b}=\frac{5}{x}$,
