(3/x)-1=(7/x-20)

why are there brackets around the right side? Did you mean 7/(x-20) ?

I can only take your question at face value the way you typed it.

Then it would be the same as

3/x - 1 = 7/x - 20

multiply each term by x

3 - x = 7 - 20x

19x = 4

x = 4/19

it suppose to be (3/x)-1=7/(x-20)
