Algebra 2
posted by Marie .
I am completely lost trying to solve this problem. I could really use some help and explanation.
x/x+1 + 5/x = 1/x^2+x
also how do you write
(x5)(x5) would it be x^25

You need parenthesis.
I'll assume your problem is,
x/(x+1) + 5/x = 1/(x^2 + x)
x/(x+1) + 5/x = 1/(x(x + 1))
Multiply both sides by x(x + 1)
x^2 + 5(x + 1) = 1
x^2 + 5x + 5 = 1
x^2 + 5x + 4 = 0
(x + 1)(x + 4) = 0
x = 1 or x = 4
Make sure you check both answers in the original equation. I have NOT checked. 
I have been trying to figure this problem out and I am completely lost.
Could someone help guide me through it?
(3x^40x^38x^2 3x3) / (x^23)
