Homework Help: please help math

Posted by margie on Sunday, March 4, 2007 at 7:27pm.

x/3-2/3=1/x
*Solve the rational below.
I really need help.



multiply both sides by x.

x^2/3 -2x/3 = 1
multiply both sides by 3
subtract three from each side
x^2 -2x -3=0
(x-3)(x+1)=0

Then either of the factors can be zero, or x=3 or x=-1
