My sister thinks these problems are unsolvable for x. I can't find any examples in my book. I know how to solve basic proportion problems, but these two are hard.
1. x : x-3 = x+4 : x
2. x+1 : 6 = x-1 : x
Thanks!
Hey BrokenRitual.
Try getting rid of the denominators and collect the terms.
For the first one we have x^2 + 4x =x^2 - 3x or 7x = 0 => x = 0 but this is a contradiction since x is on the denominator and can't be zero. So no solution exists.
You try the same kind of technique for the second one.
Hello, BrokenRitual!
Why do you say these are "hard"?
