Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess you meant \[q+3/q=4 \] just multiply with q. to get \[q ^{2}+3 =4q\] Now add 4q to get 0 at one side. factorise it: (x+3)(x+1)=0 The solution is 3,1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ahhh, is it this: q + 3/q = 4? then multiply every term by q: q*q + q*3/q = 4*q Simplify: q^2 + 3 = 4q add 4q to both sides: q^2 + 3 + 4q = 4q + 4q simplify: q^2 +4q +3 = 0 and factor (q+1)(q+3)
