 Question 511788: 1/(x+1) + a/(x^2-1) = x/(x^2-1) to hold for all x, a must equal a # simplify the left side of the equation and compare what you get with the right side. (1/(x+1))(x^2-1)/(x^2-1) + (a/(x^2-1))(x+1)/(x+1)= (x^2-1)+a(x+1)/((x^2-1)(x+1)) therefore (ax+a)/(x^3-x) which simplifies to a/(x(x-1)) but this is not a number... let me know! thanks!
