Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks like you have two fraction bars there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{u}{u\frac{(u+1)}{2}}=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well first of all \[u(u+1)=uu1=1\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what you really have is \[\frac{u}{\frac{1}{2}}=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dividing by one half same as multiplying by 2 so you get \[2u=4\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0divide by 2 to get \[u=\frac{4}{2}=2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{u}{\frac{2u(u+1)}{2}}=u \div \frac{(2u(u+1))}{2}=u \times \frac{2}{u1}=\frac{2u}{u1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did you get 2u from?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the very first step...

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok multiply top and bottom by 2 get \[\frac{2u}{2u(u+1)}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no pellet... lol. okay. i'm with you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0clears the annoying 2 in the bottom of the denominator

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now as we say in the math biz combine liked terms to get \[\frac{2u}{u1}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. he thinks i know things and understand. :p

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we have \[\frac{2u}{u1}=4\] \[2u=4(u1)\] \[2u=4u4\] \[u = 2\] whew

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0waddya mean cheated? how else do you clear fractions?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was taught to multiply the whole left side by the complex fraction u(u+1/2) and do the same on the right...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooohhhh i see you subtracted in the denominator then inverted and multiplied. ok that works too.
