The question says: "Find all real solutions of the equation":

(1/(x-1))-(2/x^2)=0

The exapmple in this section of the text says to multiply by the LCD, to get rid of the fractions, and then factor once you've expanded the left side. I would like to double check the steps, because I keep getting stuck on steps 1-2.

Step 1

LCM of the denominators= x^2 (x-1).

Step 2

We multiply both side by x^2 (x-1) and distribute it.

Step 3

Then distribute -2 too.

x^2-2x+2 can not be factored. We ...
