sqrt5 -1/x = sqrt5/2

i cross multiplied and i got 3.5= 2.23x
is that right?

  • Algebra 1 -

    well, since √5 = 2.235, it looks like you cross-multiplied and ended up with

    √5+1 = √5/2 x (almost)

    So, either there is a typo, or you got + and - mixed up.

    The next question is, did you mean

    (√5-1)/x = √5/2

    or

    √5 - (1/x) = √5/2

    ??

    In any case, your answer is not correct for the equation as written
