Solving Equations with Rational Expressions
posted by Mike on .
Can someone please show me how to solve these for me?
I assume that your second equation has y as a typo. I will use that as an example.
Multiply both sides by 3. I will also assume that (1/x-5) is the same as (1/x)-5 rather than 1/(x-5).
Get the x terms on one side and the numerical terms on the other by adding 2 and subtracting 3/x from both sides.
Multiply both sides by x.
Unfortunately, I cannot carry the process further. However, it should make the process clear.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
