    Rational Function

    Solve

    1) 1/x-1 + 1/x = 5

    2) 3x/x^3+x = 5

    3) 4x/x-1 = 6


    It will be appreciated if you explained by steps, so I can write it on my notes. I really need help with this, please help!

    Thank you

     4x/x-1 = 6

    This would imply

     4-1 = 6

    which makes no sense.


    Did you mean?

     \frac{4x}{x-1} = 6

    if so

    Spoiler:

     4x = 6(x-1)

     4x = 6x-6

     -2x = -6

     x = 3
