Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well first thing you want to do is try and get a common factor in the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what we do is subtract 4/(x^29) to the left side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we now have: \[1/(x+3)  2/(x+3)  4/(x^29)\] So we multiply the first term by (x+3)/(x+3) and the second term by (x+3)/(x+3) This gives us \[[(x+3)+(2x6)4] / (x^29) = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then simplifies down to (3x1)/ (x^29) = 0 Multiply both sides by (x^29) so your left with 3x1=0 and solve for x so x = 1/3
