    1: x= -4/3, x= -5 2: x= -4/3, x= 5 3:x= 4/3, x= -5 4:x= 4/3, x= 5

    I think Im retarded because either 5 or -5 have to work . But I tried and of course I did something wrong

    Wolfram says -4/3 and 5. Must've done something wrong when solving the equation.

    The correct eq. is 3x^2-11x-20=0

    \[\frac{2}{x-2}+\frac{7}{x^{2}-4}=\frac{5}{x}\] \[\frac{x+2}{x+2}*\frac{2}{x-2}+\frac{7}{x^{2}-4}=\frac{5}{x}\] \[\frac{2x+4+7}{x^{2}-4}=\frac{5}{x}\] \[2x^{2}+11x = 5x^{2}-20\] \[3x^{2}-11x-20 = 0\]
