I have this function Y=(X^2+2)/(x-1) and get this Y`=2x(x-1)-(x^2+2)/( x-1)^2. When I simplify to quadratic form I don’t get….x=1-sqrt3,1+sqrt3 Can anyone help?

As chip588 has stated above, you end up with This is a quadratic equation of the form where, solve for x with this formula With this formula, you will get the answer you are looking for. Give it a shot!
