# How do you solve #2/(x-1) - 2/3 =4/(x+1)#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

So, we multiply top and bottom of each fraction by the appropriate part of the required denominator:

Because everything is over a common denominator, we can ignore it and focus on the numerators.

We've arrived at a simple quadratic, can solve by factorisation but for completeness we'll use the quadratic formula.

Have a = 2, b = 6, c = -20.

Hence
