Amanda tells you that because a variable is in the denominator, the equation 3/x + 1/3 = 5/6 becomes unsolvable. Amanda explains, "There is a value for x that makes the denominator zero, and you can't divide by zero." Demonstrate to Amanda how the equation is still solvable and explain your reasoning.

    Amanda is correct in saying "you can't divide by 0" but zero is not the answer to the equation. |dw:1444080293470:dw|

    There is a value of x that makes the equation true. |dw:1444080391042:dw|
