Solve 4 over x minus 4 equals the quantity of x over x minus 4, minus four thirds for x and determine if the solution is extraneous or not.
x = 4, extraneous
x = 4, nonextraneous
x = 4, extraneous
x = 4, nonextraneous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is no solution, so not sure why you are supposed to come up with one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess since there is no solution you are supposed to say x = 4, extraneous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you subtract you get \[\frac{4x}{x4}=\frac{4}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since \(\frac{4x}{x4}=1\) you have \[1=\frac{4}{3}\] which is silly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not sure why you are supposed to say "4, extraneous" when "no solution" should suffice, but what do i know? must be some math teacher way to solve that gives \(4\) as an answer, even though it isn't one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you clear the denominator (multiply by x4 ) you can "solve" to get x=4 but really sats way of solving shows no solution with no extraneous value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\large \dfrac{4}{x4}=\dfrac{x}{x4}\dfrac{4}{3} \) \(\large 3(x  4)\dfrac{4}{x4}=3(x  4)\dfrac{x}{x4}3(x  4)\dfrac{4}{3} \) \(\large 12 = 3x 12x + 48\) \(\large 9x = 36\) \(\large x = 4\) Since x = 4 cause a zero in the denominator, x = 4 is discarded and there is no solution.
