Find the values of x that makes (2x-1)/(x-5)(x+3) an indeterminate.
Really confused. Please help.
Do you mean undefined? Undefined happens when you divide non-zero by zero, thus, Thus, . Now indeterminate is when you divide zero by zero. But the problem is non of -3 or 5 make the numerator zero. Because, and thus, this fraction is never indeterminate. It is however undefined for -3,5 if that you were asking.Originally Posted by Bethfor88
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.
