I have the following problem to solve and I am not sure if I have the correct answer. Could you let me know if I do?
1/x+5+2=5/x+5
my answer: 3
your answer is incorretct ..it should be x=2
u just have to practice more often ..
Combine like terms first by adding or subtracting terms from both sides of the equation.
1/x+5+2=5/x+5
2 = 4/x
I mentioned this in response to a later post. Ihope hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
