Find all values of c such that c/(c - 5) = 4/(c + 4).

 

Hello Guest!

 

\(\frac{c}{c-5}=\frac{4}{c+4}\\ c^2+4c=4c-20\\ c^2=-1\cdot 2^2\cdot 5\)

\(c=2i \sqrt{5}\)

Find all values of c such that c/(c - 5) = 4/(c + 4).  

 

Cross multiply                     c • (c + 4)  =  4 • (c – 5)  

 

Multiply it out                           c2 + 4c  =  4c – 20  

 

Subtract 4c from both sides            c2  =  –20

 

Square root of both sides                  c  =  +sqrt(–20)
