Is there a typo?
You have a positive exponent and a negative exponent.
Even if the signs were alike, that "c" makes for a messy solution.
I will wait for your clarification.
I have been trying to find a solution to the following problem.
x(4/3) - x(-2/3) + c = 0 where -1 < x > 1
I think if I could solve,
s(-2) - s + c = 0,
I could use substitution to solve the first equation, but I have not had any luck with the second either.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for responding. I'm afraid the negative exponent is correct. The limit however should be -1 < x < 1. I have used an Excel spreadsheet to calculate some examples by trial and error and the formula seems to be working. The task of simplifying the formula, however, has eluded me.
