Solve the equations in Exercises 1–26. 1 x 2 − 1 1 + 1 = 0

To determine

To calculate: The solution of the equation 1x21x+1=0.

Explanation

Given information:

The equation, 1x21x+1=0.

Formula used:

The solution of the quadratic equation ax2+bx+c=0 is,

x=b±b24ac2a

Calculation:

Consider the expression,

1x21x+1=0

Rewrite the above expression as,

1x2=1x+1

Multiplying both side of the above equation by x2(x+1),

1x2x2(x+1)=1x+1x2(x
