# How do you solve 1/(b+2)+1/(b+2)=3/(b+1)?

Jul 13, 2017

By arranging equation, you will get $b = - 4$

#### Explanation:

When you arrange your equation, you will get

$\frac{1 + 1}{b + 2} = \frac{3}{b + 1}$

$\frac{2}{b + 2} = \frac{3}{b + 1}$

$2 \left(b + 1\right) = 3 \left(b + 2\right)$

$2 b + 2 = 3 b + 6$

$2 b - 3 b = 6 - 2$

$- b = 4$

or

$b = - 4$

This is your answer $b = - 4$
