What is the solution to the rational equation x / 2x + 1 + 1 / 4 = 2 / 2x + 1?

  • Algebra 2 - ,

    is the equaton suppose to look like this

    (x/2x) + 1 + 1/4 = (2/2x) + 1 ?

    if it is then what you do is simplify ffirst

    (x/2x) = 1/2 cause x cancel

    (1/2) + 1 +(1/4) = (2/2x) + 1

    and (2/2x) =(1/x)

    (1/2) + 1 + (1/4) = (1/x) + 1

    1 + (3/4) = (1/x) + 1

    subtract 1 from both side

    (3/4) = (1/x) and then multiply x to get rid of it from the denominator

    (3/4)x = 1

    x= (4/3)
