Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought when you divide a fraction by another fraction you are really just multiplying it by the reciprocal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0√(x+5)  1 = √x √x + 1 = √(x+5) by squaring both sides, (√x + 1)² = [√(x + 5)]² (√x)² + 2 * √x * 1 + 1² = x + 5 x + 2√x + 1 = x + 5 2√x = 5  1 √x = 4/2 x = 2² x = 4
