Can you take out the X?
 2 months 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.

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

It's the same variable so I tried to factor it out but I don't think that's how it works...

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..

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

Nvm seems complicated xD

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

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?
 2 months 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>?
 2 months 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
 2 months ago

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

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

square both of sides of the equation x+1/x=11 to see magic

This is only a 2step problem.

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

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

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oops double negative i hope you know what i mean
