    Can you take out the X?

    it's X+(1/X)=11 So, In the equation can't you take out the X as common factor?

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

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

    Multiply both sides by x, since it's an equation I think you can do that..

    It'll be \(\Large x^2+1=11x\)

    Why multiply both sides, it'll make X^2 ... that will be one dirty sitaution

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

    second one the 1/x is a fraction

    so we have this: \[x+\frac{1}{x}=11 ; x^2+\frac{1}{x^2}\]

    my initial move is to square both sides of that equation first

    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
