 Question 268027: choose some values of x and evaluate the expression for those values 1/(x-5)>10Answer by CharlesG2(828)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!choose some values of x and evaluate the expression for those values 1/(x-5)>10 if 1/(x-5) = 10 what would x be? 1 = 10 * (x-5) (multiplied both sides by x-5) 1 = 10x - 50 51 = 10x 5.1 = x if 1/(x-5) = 20 what would x be? 1 = 20 * (x-5) (multiplied both sides by x-5) 1 = 20x - 100 101 = 20x 5.05 = x x 1/(x-5) is >10 ? 0 -0.2 no 4 -1 no 4.9 -10 no 4.99 -100 no 5 #DIV/0! #DIV/0! 5.01 100 yes 5.02 50 yes 5.03 33.33333333 yes 5.04 25 yes 5.05 20 yes 5.09 11.11111111 yes 5.1 10 no 5.2 5 no 5.3 3.333333333 no 5.4 2.5 no 5.5 2 no 6 1 no 5 < x < 5.1
