This is the best post I have EVER seen. Thank you SOOO MUCH. You are incredible. I really don't know how you thought to take that route, it is brilliant. Really thank you!
multiply all terms by the common denominator to clear all fractions
collect all terms on the LHS
That's looks pretty nasty but I notice that putting u = 1 makes this expression zero => (u-1) is a factor
So one solution is u = 1 and I'll use the quadratic formula for the other two
The plus sign case is the one you want. Presumably you can find a reason to disregard the other two.
I AM SO SORRY. I do not know why I cannot type, that a is meant to be 'u' just like the 'u' on the RHS.
Another thought. Could that 'a' be a nine ?
So to clarify the eventual solution is supposedly:
Yes bob bundy, that is exactly it!
The Answer is:
Hi, I have spent SOOO long trying to manipulate this thing to get the right answer.. I really cannot do it.
