 Question 221177: I have tried to solve the below equation and would to verify that I am correct in my process - thank you. x/x+3 = 2/x-3 x(x-3)=2(x+3) x^2-3x=3x+6 x^2-5x-6=0 (x-3)(x-2) x-3=0, x=3 x-2=0, x=2 Answer by Alan3354(31538)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! I have tried to solve the below equation and would to verify that I am correct in my process - thank you. x/x+3 = 2/x-3 x(x-3)=2(x+3) x^2-3x=3x+6 x^2-5x-6=0 (x-3)(x-2) x-3=0, x=3 x-2=0, x=2 ------------ Sub the values into the original eqn, see if it works. 3/(3+3) =? 2/(3-3) No, 3 doesn't. 2/(2+3) =? 2/(2-1) No again. --------- x/x+3 = 2/x-3 x(x-3)=2(x+3) x^2-3x=2x+6 x^2-5x-6=0 ---------- (x-3)(x-2) ** = x^2 - 5x + 6 (not -6) ---------- x^2-5x-6=0 (x+1)(x-6) = 0 x = 6 x = -1 ------- x-3=0, x=3 x-2=0, x=2 ------------
