Thanks fo rthe help Dear trigzyo, Obviously and are solutions to this equation. More generally any constant multiple of is a solution. That is,
thanks, I already knew the actual solutions because they are in the back of the book. I was looking for an algebraic solution to find the solutions. Thanks a bunch though!
Hello, trigzyo! Welcome aboard! I solved it . . . but it took me a while. Hope you can following my reasoning. I will assume: . We have: . Multiply the first fraction by Then we have: . Multiply by . . . . We have two equations to solve . . . . . . .
