If Y=(4x)/x+1 what is Y?

Nov 21, 2016

$Y = 5$
(but see below)

Explanation:

The question isn't completely clear.

Did you want to solve for $Y$ given
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} Y = \frac{4 x}{x} + 1$?

Alternatively you might have wanted to solve for $Y$ with
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} Y = \frac{4 x}{x + 1}$

...or, maybe, since this is asked under Differentiation and Quotient Rule, you wanted $\frac{\mathrm{dy}}{\mathrm{dx}}$
But, if so did you want it for
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} Y = \frac{4 x}{x} + 1$ or $Y = \frac{4 x}{x + 1}$ or something else?

Please clarify, if you are still interested.
