An algebraic equation with fractions 2010-09-10
From leah:
If 6/x - (x-1)/2 = 4 then the LCD is 2x, right? so you get 12/2x - (x2-x)/2x = 8x/2x, right? then what do you do with the 2x when you turn it into a quadratic equation?

x = (y^2 - b^2)/2b 2005-09-04
From Bob:
while looking at x=(y2-b2)/2b on a table I was preparing for a graph, I saw that there is a point where x and y get closer to each other's value. By trial and error I tried to find the point where x=y. I saw a number which looked familiar and I realized it was the square root of 2. and so, if y=b(1+square root of 2) then x=b(1+square root of 2) also, or as x=y.
My question is: How can this result x=y when y=b(1+square root of 2) be algebraically derived from the equation x=(y2-b2)/2b without pre knowing it is so?

3A/4 +1=(2A-1)/3 2005-08-21
From Rachael:

I'm doing a practice test question and the answer I keep turning out is different from the answer on the answer sheet. I think I might be forgetting a step. The problem is:

3A/4 +1=(2A-1)/3

The answer is -16. If anyone could explain the steps to me to getting the answer I would be grateful. Whenever I do it I get something completely different.
