**Math algebra**

I have a hunch you mean f(x)= (x-2)/(x^2-81) which is (x-2)/ [ (x-9)(x+9) ] it is zero if the numerator is zero so when x = 2 it is undefined when the denominator is zero x = 9 or x = -9

**ANOTHER TRIANGLE MATH PROB!**

Now maybe you need to do this a more official way to really get it 21/24 = 10.5/x we want to get the 24 and the x out of the bottom so multiply both sides by 24 x 24 x (21/24) = 24 x (10.5/x) 21 x = 24 * 10.5 x = 24 * (10.5/21) x = 24 * (.5) x = 12
