anonymous 5 years ago Here is the same kind of problem i need help clarifying the steps bc i keep getting confused ^_^ It in the attachment! :)

1. anonymous

Here it is: The options are A. {0.25, 2} B. {1/2, 2} C. {1/2, 1} D. {.25, 1}

2. anonymous

pretty please with a cherry on top will u help? :D

3. anonymous

$\frac{3}{x-1}+\frac{2}{x}=4$ is that it?

4. anonymous

yep :)

5. anonymous

ok here goes

6. anonymous

:)

7. anonymous

Wait doesnt x = 2?

8. anonymous

>.< nvm thats not one of the option i need help clarifying the steps

9. M

this is a long one so i'll probably make a mistake somewhere

$\frac{3}{x-1}+\frac{2}{x}=4$ $\frac{3x+2(x-1)}{x(x-1)}=4$ $\frac{5x-2}{x(x-1)}=4$ $5x-2=4x(x-1)$ $5x-2=4x^2-4x$ $4x^2-9x+2=0$ $(4x-1)(x-2)=0$ $x=\frac{1}{4}$ or $x=2$

oh i didn't see the options. it is A.
