First, let us identify any restrictions on the variable.

#### Explanation:

In rational equations, restrictions make the denominator be equal to

Therefore, we can find any restrictions by setting the denominator to 0 and solving.

Thus,

**Solving:**

Neither of these contradict the restrictions, therefore our solution set is
