Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a fraction and a fraction is also a division. If this is an equation, then I would set it equal to zero if it is not equal to anything else (that is, if this is a complete problem). Specifically, I would do the following: (4x+3)/(x5) = 0 Multiply both sides of the equation by (x5) 4x+3 = 0 4x = 3 x = 3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A rational expression consists of rational numbers (integers) in which one can be written over another so long as the denominator is not zero. Therefore, x cannot equal 5 in the expression. The solution I arrived at is a rational expression. I hope this helps.
