Assalamualikum, bro, its me from MSN, all you do is cross multiply:

 

1, 3X = 4(2X+1)

3X = 8X + 4

-5X = 4

x= -4/5

 

2, on the bottom youve got the same denominator (2+a) = (a+2), so just add the top line... = 2+a

_______ = 1

2+a

 

 

3, First factorise X^2 - X - 2

= (x+1) (x-2)

So the common denominator is (x-2)(x+1) since theres already (x-2) on the bottom of the left hand side of the sum..

 

Mulitiply the numerator of the left hand side by (x+1):

 

1(x+1) - 3

_____________________

(x+1) (x-2)

 

open the top line brackets:

 

x + 1 - 3

________

(x+1)(x-2)

 

the top line here is (x-2), so cancel it with the one on the bottom... =

 

1

____

 

x+1

 

Im assuming Q3, is just simplyfing...

 

 

hope its right :D

:D

oops got a lil late :D looks liek bro AbdALlah already solved it for you .but nonethless i'll post my solutions :P

 

 

here it goes:

1)

x/(2x+1) = 4/3 (right?)

 

by cross multiplication we get

 

3x = 4(2x+1)

=> 3x=8x+4

=> 3x-8x=4

=> -5x=4

=> x=-4/5

(thanx elif didnt note it before :P)

 

 

2)

 

a/(2+a) + 2/(a+2)

now (2+a) =(a+2 ) -> cumulative property wrt addition remeber??

 

so :

a/(2+a) + 2/(a+2) can be written as a/(a+2) + 2/(a+2)

 

now we see that boteh the fractions have common denomiantor

adding them up we get

 

(a+2)

------- = 1 as they cancel each other!

(a+2)

 

 

 

 

 

3) 1/( x-2) - 3 /(x^2-x-2)

 

 

if you factorize (x^2-x-2) you get (x-2) (x+1) ! how??

coz multiplying x^2 and -2 we get -2x^2

and we know -2x+ x= -x which is equal to the middle entity

also (-2x) * (x) = -2x^2

 

so we can replace -x in the equation with -2x+x

 

now placing that in equation we get

x^2 -2x+x-2

factorizing :

x(x-2) + 1(x-2)

= (x +1) (x-2)

 

replacing this in teh denomintor we get

 

1/(x-2) - 3/(x-2)(x+1)

 

taking LCD

 

(x+1 ) - 3 (x-2)

------------- = ---------

(x+1)(x-2) (x+1)(x-2)

 

which is equal to 1/(x+1)

 

 

 

 

hope i simplified things?? best of luck!! :D u'll be in my prayers. you can ask if you faind anything confusing in the above solution
