Simplify and show work for the equation please

4/x+3 -3/x-2
 
 

Comments

This cannot be an equation, as there is no equal sign. Otherwise, I do not understand what it is.

IF equation is 4/x+3 = -3/x-2
 
4/x+3 = -3/x-2
 
Multiply both sides by x:
 
4+3x = -3-2x
 
Add 2x-4 to both sides:
 
5x = -7
 
x = -7/5

Combine like terms: ( 4/x - 3/x ) + (3 - 2). 
 
When simplified: 1/x + 1.
