# Simplifying ‘fraction-over-fraction-over-fraction’

It's repetitive and I'm just confused on what to do; I know we have to find a LCD but the fraction-over-fraction-over-fraction is throwing me off.

$$x + \frac{1}{x+\frac{1}{x+\frac{1}{x}}}$$

• What's the deal with "$1(x)$"??? Why not just use $x$? – barak manos Nov 23 '16 at 5:47
• Whoops, I forgot a couple of parenthesis, I fixed them now. Hopefully it makes sense! – Sweetcharge Nov 23 '16 at 5:52
