 Question 646498: Hello professor. I'm having a real difficult time with this problem. My worksheet just says solve. I'm assuming its an equatic eq or completing the square. This is the problem. 3/3x-1/x+1=1 and my choices are, A.0 B. -1+the squareroot of 5 over 2 C. -3+sq root of 5 over 2 or D. 1+sq of 5 over 2. And my worksheet says solve the equation. So I think it's a quadratic eq but I dont know what to do since there's fractions. Thank you for your help!Answer by stanbon(60777)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!3/3x - 1/(x+1) = 1 and my choices are, A.0 B. -1+the squareroot of 5 over 2 C. -3+sq root of 5 over 2 or D. 1+sq of 5 over 2. ----- I give up. 3/3x-1/x+1=1 ----- I cannot tell where the 1st term ends. Is it 3/(3x-1) ? --- or 3/(3x-1)/(x+1) ? ---- or something else ? ------- Use parentheses to make your problem clear to the reader. ==================== Cheers, Stan H.
