no LCD is the lowest common denominate r that means the lowest term into which each term will divide here it is 2x - 8 2x - 8 / 2 = x -4 2x - 8 / x - 4 = 2 and of course 2x - 8 / 2x - 8 = 1
so all the terms will go into 2x-8 ?
all the denominators will so we multiply through by 2x - 8:- |dw:1372281835644:dw|
oooh - thats a illy mistake of mine look at the second term it should be 1 * 2 NOT 1 * x - 4
so this reduces to 3(x - 4) - 2 = -2 which is easy to solve
do you understand the mistake i made?
i got x=4
right
thanks
hold it - 4 cannot be a solution because 1 / x -4 = 1 /4 - 4 = 1/0 which has no value there are NO solutions to this equation
