2/w+ 4/w-1 = 10/w(w-1)

2(w-1)/w(w-1) + 4w/w(w-1)=10/w(w-1)
2w-2/w(w-1 +/4w/w(w-1= 10(w-1)/w(w-1)
2w-2+4w=10w-10
2w+4w-10w=-10-2
6w-10w=-10-2
-4w=8
w=2

  • algebra -

    w=2 satisfies the original equation, so I guess your solution is correct.

    However, the steps should be

    2(w-1)/2(w-1) + 4w/w(w-1) = 10/w(w-1)
    2w-2 + 4w = 10
    6w = 12
    w = 2

    Did I do this problem right? (2y+5w+6)(5y+5w-4) 2y(5y)+ 2y(5w) + 2y(-4) + 5w(5y) + 5w(5w)+ 5w(-4) + 6(5y) + 6(5w) + 6(-4) then I multiplied: 10y^2 + 10wy - 8y + 25wy + 25w^2 - 20w + 30y + 30w - 24 then I combined like terms: 10y^2
