For which values of \(k\) does the equation \(\frac{x-1}{x-2} = \frac{x-k}{x-6}\) have no solution for \(x\)? Enter all the possible values of \(k,\) separated by commas.

You can see straight off that x cannot be 2 or 6.

Now just for the moment you can ignore that.


Try solving for x in terms of k and see what happens.   The answer will present itself.

But asker guest can interact with me if he/she wants      (or with others if i don't answer quickly)
