Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2But 2 is excluded from the domain of the original equation because it would make the denominator of one of the fractions zeroand division by zero is not allowed! . Therefore, it cannot be a root of the original equation. So, 2 is an extraneous solution. So, the equation has no solutions.
