I have the equation x+3-1/x=0 and I have an answer of x = 0.30 (to 2 d.p.), I just need to know the steps to get there,

Many thanks

**Henry**, Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 5:38pm(X+3)-1/X=0.

Multiply both sides by X:

X^2 + 3X - 1 = 0.

Solve using Quadratic Formula.

X = (-3+-sqrt(9 + 4)) / 2

X = 0.30, and -3.3
