WILL GIVE MEDAL AND FOLLOW.. PLEASE HELP!!!
Kelly tells you that when variables are in the denominator, the equation one over two plus three over x equals three over four becomes unsolvable. Kelly explains, "There is a value for x that makes the denominator zero, and you can't divide by zero." Demonstrate to Kelly how the equation is still solvable and explain your reasoning.
