Find x+1/x if

3x + 2/x - 4 = 2(x + 9) - 2x + 7x + 3x + 2/x

Here let me help 

 

First, let's cancel these out

 

3x + 2/x - 4 = 2(x + 9) - 2x + 7x + 3x + 2/x

      -2/x                                               -2/x

 

Now we have

 

3x - 4 = 2(x + 9) - 2x + 7x + 3x 

 

But wait there's still one more thing that will cancel out. 

 

3x - 4 = 2(x + 9) - 2x + 7x + 3x 

-3x                                      -3x

 

After this we have 

 

-4=2(x+9)-2x+7x

 

Now we multiply the numbers

 

Hope this helps!

 

-4=2x+18-2x+7x

 

Next, the -2x and the 2x cancel out leaving us with

 

-4=18+7x

 

Then we will subtract the 18 from both sides leaving us with

 

-22=7x

 

Finally, we divide by 7 getting us an answer of

 

-22/7=x
