    start by simplifying... 10/x - 3/x = 7/x and -1 moved to the other side = 3

    so 7/x = 3 ... from there you multiply x on both sides to reach 7 = 3x... then divide the three back to the other side to get x = 7/3.

    Are you looking for the value of x?

    I have no idea what I am looking for, cause all this problem says is "SOLVE"

    I think the first guy's answer is correct. So I think you should go with "e) none of these"

    Is it - 3/x -1 or - 3 over x-1?

    The answer choices suggest a quadratic.
