I solved this equation

And ended up with 3(x-1) 2x-1 But I'm very unsteady with these sorts of things. Check my work?

first, factor the denominator of the first rational function. From that you'll know the common denominator of both the functions.

I'm trying to solve it now, and I'll check if we got the same thing

Factored, isn't it (2x-1)(x-3)? Then the x-3s would cancel out.

  • anonymous
nope, it should be (2x+1)(x-3)

Oops! Sorry. that's what I meant; typo. The buttons are right next to each other lol

so it will look like this: |dw:1433537147204:dw| then since they already have the same denominator, it will be like this: |dw:1433537285450:dw|

Would the numerator end up as x+1, or am I taking things to literally?

hmm let's see.. 3x-2-(2x+1) --> remove the brackets first 3x-2-2x-1 --> apply the operations with like terms, what is 3x-2x? and what is -2-1?

Oh! 1x-3 ( or just x-3), then, not 1. (I'm so awful at math....Thanks for the help..)

^_^ you're not done yet ! so the numerator will be x-3, and you also have x-3 in the denominator, so it means, they will cancel out and you'll end up with..?

1 over 2x+1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes :)
