Can you take out the X?
 one month ago

DanielK16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it's X+(1/X)=11 So, In the equation can't you take out the X as common factor?

its ok no problem..thanks for trying..

I think you need to solve for x in the first one, then once you find that you plug that value into the second..

yaa but how.
 one month ago

DanielK16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yea.. that's what I was trying to do but that X+(1/X)=11 is weird
 one month ago

DanielK16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It's the same variable so I tried to factor it out but I don't think that's how it works...
 one month ago

Luigi0210 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Multiply both sides by x, since it's an equation I think you can do that..
 one month ago

Luigi0210 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It'll be \(\Large x^2+1=11x\)
 one month ago

Luigi0210 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Nvm seems complicated xD
 one month ago

DanielK16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Why multiply both sides, it'll make X^2 ... that will be one dirty sitaution

its same as done by @DanielK16 but x is so weird

I tried some equation calculators on the internet and they come out like quadratics with two answers...

i'm confused is it (x+1)/x=11 or x+1/x=11?
 one month ago

DanielK16 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
second one the 1/x is a fraction

Is this calculus? with derivatives>?
 one month ago

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so we have this: \[x+\frac{1}{x}=11 ; x^2+\frac{1}{x^2}\]

correct @ myininaya

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
my initial move is to square both sides of that equation first
 one month ago

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh yes that will work perfectly and beautifully

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
square both of sides of the equation x+1/x=11 to see magic

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
This is only a 2step problem.

do you know how to square (x+1/x)?

\[(x+1/x)^2 =? \]
 one month ago

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Remember this means \[(x+\frac{1}{x})(x+\frac{1}{x})\] now multiply

ohh thanks i got it..its 119
 one month ago

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I thought to square both sides because the equation involved no items without squares and what we wanted to find involved those items with squares

ok..!!
