1/x^2+5/x=4 Can someone please help me with this problem by showing the steps that I would have to do to get the answer? I have no idea how to do this. Please help somebody.

I will be glad to show you once you have put the parentheses in the proper place.
For example, do you mean
(1/x^2) + (5/x) = 4 ?
If so, multiply each term buy x^2 and solve the resulting quadratic.
4x^2 5x 1 = 0
(x = (1/8)[5 +/ sqrt(41)]
