Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{x}{x3}=\frac{3}{x3}+9\\\]first note that x cant be 3 now lets go \[\frac{x}{x3}\frac{3}{x3}=9\\\frac{x3}{x3}=9\\x \neq 3\\we \\can\\simplify\\1=9\\\] and it has no roots

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2another method multiply by (x3) \[(x3)(\frac{x}{x3}=\frac{3}{x3}+9)\\x=3+9(x3)\\x9x=27+3\\8x=24\\x=3\] but \[x \neq 3\\\] because denominator goes to zero
