    Get the common denominator, and cross multiply...\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }+\frac{ x }{ 6 }=\frac{ 18 }{ x } \rightarrow \frac{ 3+x }{ 6 }=\frac{ 18 }{ x }\]\[x(3+x)=6(18) \rightarrow 3x+x^2-108=0 \rightarrow x^2+3x-108=0\]\[(x+12)(x-9)=0\]From here we got two values of x...\[x+12=0 \rightarrow x=-12\]\[x-9=0 \rightarrow x=9\]

    The book says no solution. Does that have no solution?

    What's the question? Do they ask for the values of x?
