**bobpursley**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:51pmPlease 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 thru these with students who are stuck in their thinking, but much more so when those students pretend to be new at the work.

Thanks.

**Damon**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:51pmx^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
