**x = -10**

**x = -2*[(√7) - 2]**or

**x = 2*[(√7) + 2]**

i dont know how to solve this. Help please!

Tutors, sign in to answer this question.

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]**
