I am not sure if this right.

1. solve rational equation

A) (x+3)/(x-1)=2x+1

x+3=(2x+1)(x-1)

x+3=2x^2 - 2x + x - 1

??

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 1:00amcollect all like terms to get a quadratic equation

2x^2 - 3x - 4 = 0

use the formula to solve for x

**Jake**, Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 1:11amSo I have to use quadratic formula right? If so, no wonder I don't get the answer

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 1:22amI think I added the x terms up incorrectly

should have been

2x^2 - 2x -4 = 0

divide by 2

x^2 - x - 2 = 0

now it factors

x(-2)(x+1) = 0

x = 2 or x = -1
