Amistre64 I don't get it! How do you get x=1 from that? I get x1=x^2 and get stuck there. Help!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we want to re dress that left one to match; we do that by multiplying it by a useful form of 1; lets use x/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 1(x)  +  = 0 now we can add them x*x x(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh my gosh! ok, i get that part where you said that a fraction can only = 0 when the numerator = 0. DUH, dumb me, I was trying to solve for x and you can't in the traditional way, can you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to add an extra 'cross multiply' thats fine; then: 1+x = 0(x^2) 1 +x = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maybe but you speak my language and not the language of mathspeak. THAT I don't get. I come here looking first for you, and you always seem to be here, so I'm sure I'll talk to you soon! Have a great night in Florida!
