Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Try multiply both sides by x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be \[7x + 4 = 2x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah. Now subtract both sides by 2x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@geerky42 okay so i got it but its not in my answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to isolate x to get your answer, so you know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve for x: 5 over quantity x squared minus 4 plus 2 over x equals 2 over quantity x minus 2. x = 8 x = –4 x = 8 and x = –4 No Solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 5 }{ x^2  4 } + \frac{ 2 }{ x } = \frac{ 2 }{ x  2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(x^24 = (x+2)(x2)\) So LCD here is \((x+2)x(x2)\) Multiply both sides by \((x+2)x(x2)\) Lot of work, yeah but it's so we won't have x in denominator anymore.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i have to multiply \[\frac{ 2 }{ z  2 }\] by (x +2) and x(x  2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah i forgot abiout the other x okay i see

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At end, you should have \(5x + 2(x+2)(x2) = 2x(x+2)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now simplify and combine like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would we get \[5x + 2x + 4 (x  2) = 2x^2 + 4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got \[5x+2x^28 = 2x^2+4x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just remember that \((x+2)(x2) = x^24\)

geerky42

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for second term in left side, you have \(2(x+2)(x2) = 2(x^24) = 2x^28\) Makes sense so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah okay now what

geerky42

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Both sides have \(2x^2\), so you can cancel them out. Leaving us \(5x8 = 4x\). Now it's simply algebra from here.
