Solutions

Chapter 1, Problem 67RE
To determine

To find the real solutions of equation x+1x1=3x3x6 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 67RE

The equation has no solution.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

  x+1x1=3x3x6

Formula used:

We will solve equation by changing it to an equivalent equation.

Distributing property:- (a+b)(c+d)=a(c+d)+b(c+d)

  =ac+ad+bc+bd

Calculations:

  =x+1x1=3x3x6

  =(x+1)(3x6)=3x(x1) (cross -multiplying)

  =x(3x6)+1(3x6)=3x(x)3x(1)

  =3x26x+3x6=3x23x (Subtracting like terms)

  =3x23x6=3x23x

(Re-writing equation)

The equation has no solution.
