## anonymous 5 years ago (2/x+2)+(3/x)=(-x/x+2) multiply each side by LCD which is x(x+2) answer shld be -3 but idk how to get to it pls show work

$(2/x+2) \times ({x/x+2}) + (3/x) \times (x/x+2) = -(x/x+2) \times (x/x+2)$ take the LCM and solve it up a little and you will end up with $x^2 + 5x + 6 = 0$ and just solve the quadratic. You will get two answers, -3 and -2
