Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you can't divide by zero, so 2x5 cannot be zero if it were, then 2x5=0 2x = 5 x = 5/2 which means that x = 5/2 makes the denominator zero. So to avoid dividing by zero, we just add the restriction that x cannot be 5/2 So the answer is choice B
