Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Get the common denominator, and cross multiply...\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }+\frac{ x }{ 6 }=\frac{ 18 }{ x } \rightarrow \frac{ 3+x }{ 6 }=\frac{ 18 }{ x }\]\[x(3+x)=6(18) \rightarrow 3x+x^2108=0 \rightarrow x^2+3x108=0\]\[(x+12)(x9)=0\]From here we got two values of x...\[x+12=0 \rightarrow x=12\]\[x9=0 \rightarrow x=9\]
