Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but ineed to know if its extranous or not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well put it back into the equation and see if it does work? if we put six what is the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hhhh well can we divide by 0 can we have 6/0 in the left in the right 6/06/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok once step at a time what is extraneous solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let me answer this, it is a solution that you find by correct algebraic maneuvers but it does not work for the equation when we put it back

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0An extraneous solution is a root of a transformed equation that is not a root of the original equation because it was excluded from the domain of the original equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah that's the definition right there so from the start x=6 is excluded from domain yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but when you were solving the equation to transform it using some maneuvers then you got x=6

xapproachesinfinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's why we say it is extraneous solution because it is not included in the domain

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is what we do \[\frac{x}{x6}=\frac{x}{x6}\frac{6}{2}\] domain here is every real number except 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1slight mistake first should be 6/x6

xapproachesinfinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \[\frac{6}{x6}=\frac{x}{x6}\frac{6}{2}\] \[\frac{6}{x6}=\frac{2x6}{2(x6)}\] \[\frac{6}{\cancel {x6}}=\frac{2x6}{2\cancel{(x6)}}\] \[6=\frac{2x6}{2}\Longrightarrow 12 =2x6 \Longrightarrow x=9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did you got x=6?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh my bad i miss something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct the solution found is x=6 just missed up above in line 2

xapproachesinfinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 6 we said excluded therefore it is extraneous
