Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont think thats right lol but the very first one you attached is right. now i just need to figure out how to get 3/4 as the second answer. The correct answer is 3 and 3/4 i just dont know how to show the work for the second answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the quadratic may have two roots, the 3 and another. I am hung up on the second line of the attachment, where he put the numerator over the LCD and got x(2x+2) I keep getting x(2x1) for the first fraction. I will look into it further and post here later. Right now I got to put my dogs up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But first lets see if 3/4 is an answer 3/4 2 1    =  3/4 +2 2(3/4)1 5 3/4 2 1    =  5/4 5/2 5 3/5  (4/5 = 1/5 It checks as an answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The solution to that quadratic does not come out to 3 or 3/4. the results of\[x=1/16(3\pm 3\sqrt{65}\] is an irrational number not the integer 3, or the fraction 3/4 something is wrong (maybe with me lol)
