1. I'm stuck!
x/2x-1 +2/x+2=1

I did this:
x(x+2)/(2x-1)(x+2) + 2(2x-1)/(2x-1)(x+2)=1
x^2+6x-2=1
x^2+6x-3=0
Now i don't know what to do. Let me know what I need to do please!

Well what is the question asking you? Do you need to solve for x? If so do difference of 2 squares (X+3)^2 -9 -3 =0
(X+3)^2-12=0

So to make it equal 0 X= -3
