 Question 404380: I am trying to solve an equation with fractions. This is the problem 2x over x^2+6x+8 = x over x+4 minus 2 over x+2 (i hope the way i wrote it is not confusing. i'm sorry!) I have gotten this far. 2x=x^2+2x-2x+4 2x=x^2+4 I can't get any further. I know that it has to be factored again but i am confused. It is not the type of equation that you have to set = to 0. I can do any of the other problems like this but i have never had one end up with an x^2 right there and my teacher told us that when we got to that point we would have to factor it again but i'm not sure if i understand the problem. I also wasn't sure if the 2x-2x was 0 or 1x. Please help me with this problem if you don't mind. Thank you! Click here to see answer by stanbon(57332)

 Question 404607: First, thank you so much for taking time to read my question. :) Well, I am working on a project for school and I am not sure how to set up an equation. I need a little help because my book doesn't include a very helpful example and the rest of the HW relies on this 1st question. That said, here's the question, Write an equation for the aircraft that gives you the distance y that the aircraft will travel in x hours. The aircraft is cruising at 504 (mi/h). --- I tried to use y= (504) x but I quickly slapped myself in the head because that won't help me find the distance (or so I think). I also tried a linear equation but it still didn't seem right... Am I missing something? Could you please help me out or show me another example of an equation like this.
