I have
Can someone help me solve for x? I tried many different ways, but I never got the answer so can someone show me the steps so I can understand what I did wrong?
1.
The answer should be , but I don't know how to get that answer...
2.
The same for this one, i don't know how to get the answer
Yes!
You can do that but I think it is simpler first to clear the fraction on the right side by multiplying both numerator and denominator by 1-x:then:
From , you can multiply both sides by 2- x to get (2-x)(y-1)= 1-x so 2y-2- (y-1)x= 1- x. Add x to both sides and subtract 2y-2 from both sides: x-(y-1)x= 1+2- 2y or (2-y)x= 3- 2y.I don't know if I am right, but this is where I'm stuck at...
can anyone help me with the next steps to get the answer ?
Finally, divide both sides by 2-y.
