which method do you use to solve this equation.(x-1)^2=7. Is it the factoring method or the sqare root method I would take the square root of each side. (x-1)= +- sqrt7 Now for the factoring method: (x-1)^2=7 (x-1)^2-7=0 you have a difference of two squares.. ((x-1) +sqrt7)((x...

write in simplest form 1/10 / 1/4 they way you typed the problem illustrates well why it is so important to use brackets to show the precise order of operation. I will assume you meant (1/10) ÷ (1/4), if so then it would be (1/10)(4/1) =2/5

x/x-2 - x+1/x = 8/x^2-2x notice the last denominator factors to x(x-2) and those factors are found in the other two fractions so x(x-2) is the lowest common denominator. now multiply each term by that x(x-2) to get (x)(x) -(x+1)(x-2) = 8 simplify and solve I got x=6

2 divided by 5w+ 10, minus 3 divided by2w-4 2/(5w +10) - 3/(2w-4) ? That can be rewritten with a common denominator. (2/5)/(w+2) - (3/2)/(w-2) = [(2/5)(w-2) - (3/2)(w+2)]/(w^2-1) = [(-11/10)w - (19/5)]/(w^2-1) But it doesn't look any simpler that way.
