For what values of x is the following expression: 1/(x^2-25). How do you solve and determined the undefined value? Thanks!

    (x^2-25)=0
    Get the square root of x^2-25
    =(X-5)(X+5)
    5 -5

    the expression has to be an equation, equal to something. In the cool rich response, it is wrong. the expression X^2-25=0 cannot ever be here, as the expression has that in the denominator, and division by zero is never allowed.

    I think your question left out an important word. Did you mean to write:
    <<For what values of x is the following expression undefined?
    1/(x^2-25).>>

    The answer to THAT question is the two values of x for which the denominator is zero.
