Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In a rush to get out a solution I did not verify the result. ie: x=17 shows that the left side and the right side are not equal. Recalculated and it appears that at first glance that the fraction is equal to one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The fraction is equal to 1. The problem fraction with the braces and brackets changed to parentheses:\[\frac{((1 + (x  1)/2)/1  1/x)  x/(x  1)}{\frac{x}{2}} \]Multiply the numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator adding surrounding parentheses to the numerator.\[\frac{2}{x}(((1 + (x  1)/2)/1  1/x)  x/(x  1)) \]The following is a step by step sequence of fraction modifications, mainly simplifications to individual terms.\[\frac{2}{x}\left(((1+(x1)/2)/11/x)\frac{x}{1+x}\right) \]\[\frac{2}{x}\left(\left(\left.\frac{1+x}{2}\right/11/x\right)\frac{x}{1+x}\right) \]\[\frac{2}{x}\left(\left(\frac{1+x}{2}/\frac{1+x}{x}\right)\frac{x}{1+x}\right) \]\[\frac{2}{x}\left(\frac{x (1+x)}{2 (1+x)}\frac{x}{1+x}\right) \]Multiply through by 2/x\[\left(\frac{2}{x}\right)\left(\frac{x (1+x)}{2 (1+x)}\right)\left(\frac{x}{1+x}\right)\left(\frac{2}{x}\right) \]Expand the products on each side of the minus sign and simplify.\[\frac{1}{1+x}+\frac{x}{1+x}\frac{2}{1+x} \]\[\frac{1+x2}{1+x} \]\[\frac{1+x}{1+x}=1 \]
