1 + 2/x+1 < 2/x
(A) 1 + 2 / x + 1 < 2 / x
or this:
(B) 1 + 2 / (x+1) < 2 / x
I ask, since you'll have a bunch of people answering either question. Then they'll fight for dozens of posts. And you'll just be more confused than ever. If you clairify at the beginning, we might all be better off.
While it is true that the steps can be similar, the answers are not. And by the way, for (a), there is a much easier way to answer it.Originally posted by: talyn00
the steps to solving both problems are similiar. for (a) you can just multiply both sides by x, for (b) you can multiply both sides of (x+1)*(x) After that step you should be able to solve it with some simple algebra.
