Solve the equation:

(x/2x+2)= (-2x/4x+4) + (2x-3/x+1)

    I am not sure whether I am interpreting your question correctly.

    .5x + 2 = -.5x + 4 + 2x - 3/x + 1

    First, get all the x terms on one side.

    .5x + .5x - 2x + 3/x = 4 + 1 - 2

    Combine terms.

    -x + 3/x = 3

    Multiply both sides by x to get rid of x in the denominator.

    -x^2 + 3 = 3x


    -x^2 - 3x + 3 = 0

    Multiply by -1.

    x^2 + 3x - 3 = 0

    Unfortunately, I cannot factor this to find possible answers. Are there any typos in your equation?

    I hope this helps a little. Thanks for asking.
