How to solve this Question?
:
1/z+ 1/y+ 1/x + 1/w + 1/v + 1/t + 1/s = 1
1/z means 1 over z a fraction.
The letters can be any number.
How to find seven numbers that fit into the equation?
(the numerator is always 1)
What if its 8 sets or 9 sets of fraction? is there any technique?
janvdl is right, in this specific case you have only one constraint and seven unknowns which means that you have 6 D.O.F.'s --> you can choose six of the variables to be whatever you want and the last variable is determined by the equation at hand.In my opinion the letters can be just about any numbers, unless there is something special about them. Such as a ratio between them. Is this actually a real problem or did you make it up?
Hello, hotgal24!
What is the exact wording of the problem?
Solve: .
The letters can be any number. . . . . Really?
Then we can have: . . . . duh!
Or how about:

I would assume the denominators must be distinct positive integers.
. . If so, I have a solution for it.
