Here is my work...

=(lnx-(x-1)) / ((x-1)(lnx))

=(lnx-1) / (lnx+ (x+1)/x)

This becomes(1/x) / ((1/x)+(1/x^2))

which becomes 1/ (1/x^2)

This equals 1/2. I understand the answer has to be -1/2, but I am having trouble figuring out where that negative sign is coming from. What have I missed? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

How did you get to the next line?
