Homework Help: pre calc

Posted by Muffy on Saturday, October 24, 2009 at 3:51pm.

Solve: (x+5/x)+(6/x-4)=(-7/x^2-4x)

I multiplied the entire function by x and x-4 and after doing that I got down to the quadratic equation
x^2+7x-13=0

I did the quadratic and got

x=1.525 and -8.525

I feel like I made a mistake because when I plug in both of those answers for x separately, it never works out. Not sure if I made an error in calculating or in plugging in, or if there is no solution.

Thanks.
