Hannah tells you that when variables are in the denominator, the equation four over seven plus eight over x equals one over two becomes solvable. She explains, "There is a value for x that makes the denominator zero, and you can't divide by zero."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, it means he's wrong. There is a value for x that makes the denominator 0, but the equation is still solvable. 10 is the solution for x. 0 is the value where it wouldn't have a solution. Like if you were trying to graph 3/x, you would be able to for all values except 0
