Solutions

Chapter 1.4, Problem 96E
To determine

Whether the equation, x+1y+1=xy is true for all the values of the variable.

Expert Solution

No, given equation x+1y+1=xy is not true for all the values of the variables. .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given equation is x+1y+1=xy

Consider the given equation x+1y+1=xy

At y=1 ,

Left side of the equation x+1y+1

And right side of the equation,

xyx(any real value of x)

Therefore, the equation x+1y+1=xy is not true for all the values of the variables.
