Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[1/x=3/(x+2)−2/(x−3)\] \[1(x2)(x3)/x(x3)(x2)=3x(x3)/(x+2)(x3)x−2x(x2)/(x−3)(x2)x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start by multiplying by the least common denominator x(x+2)(x3), you will get: \[(x+2)(x3)=3x(x3)2x(x+2)\] which is a quadratic equation that can be easily solved
