ok so i have this problem.
So i know i should multiply both sides by the denominator then factorize then subtract , then use quadratic formula right?
But i keep getting mixed up , or maybe i am missing somthing. Can somebody please help me.
To use the quadratic function, one side must be equal to 0. Did your question not include an equality? You can't find the value of x without having the function equal something (and if you did have any value instead of 0, you could bring it to the x side to get 0); Even if you simplify that down to the form , you don't know what that function is equal to, x could have an infinite number of possibilities. Otherwise I'd say your instructor wants you to assume it is equal to 0 and do as you are planning to.
Turns out to be a very similar problem.
