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)]
