## anonymous 5 years ago (x+3)/(x+1)-1/x=1 I tried to move forward with common denominators of (x)(x+1) but then I got lost

1. anonymous

because then I got x^2 +2x-2=0 ??

2. amistre64

$\frac{x+3}{x+1} - \frac{1}{x} = 1 ??$

3. anonymous

4. amistre64

x^2 +3x -x -1 = x^2 +x

5. anonymous

not right

6. amistre64

we get: x-1 = 0 x = 1

7. anonymous

I forgot my negative...ok let me focus on my problems, lol

8. amistre64

;)

9. anonymous

x^2 +3x -x -1 = x^2 +x ...you don't still need the denominator on the left here?
