 Question 113586: Someone please help, I am totally confused with the following. a) show the steps you would take to solve the following 4-(x/x-2)=(-2/x-2) b) What potential solution did you obtained? Explain why this is not a solution. Thank you in advance for you helpAnswer by stanbon(57387)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a) show the steps you would take to solve the following 4-(x/x-2)=(-2/x-2) Multiply thru by (x-2) to get: 4(x-2) - x = -2 4x-8 - x = -2 3x = 6 x = 2 --------- Checking: 4 - (2/0) = -2/0 Division by zero is not allowed; it is "undefined". =================== Cheers, Stan H.
