# 1 Answer

Are we supposed to interpret this as:

A. (6/x) + (4/x) +2 = 1

or

B. (6/x) + [4/(x+2)} = 1?

If A., then

**x = -10**If B, then

**x = -2*[(√7) - 2]**or**x = 2*[(√7) + 2]**

^{2}+2x^{2}= 2x^{2}- 8x = 12 or x^{2}- 8x - 12 = 0 [Let's call this Eq. (1)]^{2}- 8x + 16 = 12 + 16^{2}+ 16 = 28^{2}= 28x = -2*[(√7) - 2]orx = 2*[(√7) + 2]^{2}- 4ac)^{1/2}]/2a^{1/2}}/2(1) = {[8 ± √(112)]}/2}x = -2*[(√7) - 2]orx = 2*[(√7) + 2]Comment
