    Please stop changing posting names. It does you no good when working with volunteers when you try to trick them. It is difficult enough to work through these with students who are stuck in their thinking, but much more so when those students pretend to be new at the work.
    Thanks.

  • Math problem - ,

    x^2-8x = x(x-8) which is LCD
    so
    5(x) - 5(x-8) = 40
    x - x + 8 = 5
    There is no solution. x can be anything

    Thank You Damon I understand now.
