How to solve for x?

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

can someone show it step by step so i can understand it? Thanks!

  • Math -

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