Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!Hi, I have spent SOOO long trying to manipulate this thing to get the right answer.. I really cannot do it. #2 20130419 04:02:57
Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!The Answer is: #3 20130419 04:09:17
Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130419 04:31:52
Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!Yes bob bundy, that is exactly it! #6 20130419 04:38:12
Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!So to clarify the eventual solution is supposedly: #7 20130419 04:45:47

Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!
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. #10 20130419 05:32:56
Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!hi Urgenthelp 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 => (u1) 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. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #11 20130419 08:48:08
Re: Hey! Algebra question! Please help me!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! #12 20130419 18:04:59
