Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the LCD is 2x+4, so if you multiply that on both sides you will get \[x = 2 + 2x+4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only thing you have to be careful is to make sure that when you start the problem, you identify the "extraneous solutions' basically the x's that makes any denominator in our eqn =0 since x = 2 is such number, it will never be the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since we did not deduce that x = 2, we just ignore it, but if x =2 was what we deduced, then there is no solution. okay, hope you do well.
