I just didn't take it far enough...my equation was set up right.
Question:
The numerator of a fraction is two less than the denominator. The sum of the fraction and its reciprocal is 25/12. Find the numerator and denominator is a positive integer.
Answer: 6/8
Where do I start on this problem? Should there only be one variable?
Here is what I tried...but it did not work:
((x-2)/x) + (x/(x-2)) = 25/2
