It is making me crazy! 5/2x+6 + 46/7x = 2 Please help!Answer by stanbon(57342)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!5/(2x+6) + 46/(7x) = 2 ----- Multiply thru by (7x)(2x+6) to get: ---------------------------- 5(7x) + 46(2x+6) = 2(7x)(2x+6) ---- 35x + 92x + 46*6 = 28x^2+84x ----------------- 28x^2-43x-276 = 0 --- Solve using the Quadratic Formula ---------------- Cheers, Stan H.
