  1. no

    12x^2 - 12x + x - 1 = -3
    12x^2 - 11x + 2 = 0
    (3x-2)(4x-1) = 0
    x = 2/3 or x = 1/4

    1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X SOLVE 1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X Let's remove the denominators by multiplying by 12X 12X*(1/3) - 12X*(5/6) = 12X*(1/X) Clear the fractions. 4X - 10X = 12 -6X=12 multipy by -1 6X=-12 Divide both sides by 6 6X/6 = -12/6 X = -2
