  1. Solve. x/5x+10+x-3/x+2=7/5

    I multiplied both sides by 5(x+2) and came up with -17

    As written, x/5x + 10 + x - 3/x + 2 = 7/5. If parentheses are supposed to be used, please correct the expression

    As written, multiply through by 5x yielding 5x^2 + 54x - 15 = 0 which will not yield you integer answers.

    x = 11.0709 or .2709
