Find the values of x that makes (2x-1)/(x-5)(x+3) an indeterminate.

Really confused. Please help.

Thanks Beth

What do you mean by "an indeterminate" here?

Is it the function $\displaystyle \frac{{2x - 1}}{{\left( {x - 5} \right)\left( {x + 3} \right)}}$ and are you looking where it isn't*defined*? Check for what values of x the denominator becomes 0. - Mar 15th 2006, 11:29 AMBethfor881 more question

Please look at College/University; Algebra. TD! has given an answer already.

If this answer isn't sufficient, you have to explain in detail what kind of problem you like to solve.

Bethfor88 Do not make duplicate threads :mad:

Also post this question in the appropriate section, this has nothing to do with College/University Algebra. - Mar 15th 2006, 11:55 AMTD!
As I was trying to show you, there's a difference between

*indeterminate*and*undefined*, which ThePerfectHacker has explained now.

I would like to add though that 0/0 isn't the only possible indeterminate form, there exist others mostly involving infinity and/or 0.
