### Hello sabi92,

#### it is too much to write, but here is the answer:

$${\frac{\left({\mathtt{2}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{22}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{7}}\right)}{\left({\mathtt{3}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{6}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{9}}\right)}} = {\mathtt{3}}$$

$${\mathtt{2}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{22}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{7}} = {\mathtt{9}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{18}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{27}}$$

$${\mathtt{7}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{x}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{4}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{20}} = {\mathtt{0}}$$            =>    $${\mathtt{x1}} = -{\mathtt{2}}$$          ;     $${\mathtt{x2}} = {\frac{{\mathtt{10}}}{{\mathtt{7}}}}$$

Sorry I don't understand how you get this

$$\begin{array}{rlll} \frac{x-2}{2x+2}-\frac{1}{3x^2-6x-9}-\frac{x-30}{18-6x}&=&3\\\\ \frac{x-2}{2(x+1)}-\frac{1}{3(x^2-2x-3)}-\frac{x-30}{6(3-x)}&=&3\\\\ \frac{x-2}{2(x+1)}-\frac{1}{3(x-3)(x+1)}+\frac{x-30}{6(x-3)}&=&3\\\\ \frac{3(x-3)(x-2)}{3(x-3)*2(x+1)}-\frac{2*1}{2*3(x-3)(x+1)}+\frac{(x+1)(x-30)}{6(x+1)(x-3)}&=&3\\\\ 3(x-3)(x-2)-2*1+(x+1)(x-30)&=&3*6(x+1)(x-3)\\\\ 3(x^2-5x+6)-2+(x^2-29x-30)&=&18(x^2-2x-3)\\\\ 3x^2-15x+18-2+x^2-29x-30&=&18x^2-36x-54\\\\ 3x^2+x^2-15x-29x+18-2-30&=&18x^2-36x-54\\\\ 4x^2-44x-14&=&18x^2-36x-54\\\\ 0&=&14x^2+8x-40\\\\ 0&=&7x^2+4x-20\\\\ \end{array}$$

$$\\Now I need 2 numbers that multiply to give 7*-20=-140\\ and add to give +4\\ Obviously one will be negative and one will be positive,\\ The bigger one will be positive\\ And the absolute value difference will be 4\\ 140=7*20\\ 140=7*2*2*5\\ 140=14*10\\ The numbers that we want are +14 and -10\\ replace 4x with 14x-10x\\ 0&=&7x^2+4x-20\\ 7x^2+14x-10x-20=0\\ Now factor in pairs\\ 7x(x+2)-10(x-2)=0\\ (7x-10)(x-2)&=&0\\ 7x-10=0\quad or \quad x-2=0\\ 7x=10\quad or \quad x=2\\ x=1\frac{3}{7}\quad or \quad x=2\\$$

Ofcourse you could have just used the quadratic equation to get the final answer but if you wanted to factor it than is the best way to go about it.   IMHO

Thanks Alan for spotting my error :)

### Alan, thank you very much, you have the same result like me !

#### And you have written all steps !!!

Yes; good to get confirmation of the result.

However, it is probably the steps that are more important than the result for someone wanting to learn how to solve these sorts of equations!
