1. The question is
Lnx/x^2 = 0

I need to solve it but for some reason the answer is 1, but I dont get how its one, because if i take the x to the power of 2 to the other side, and E both sides you get

X = e to the power of x^2
2. , so we are looking for to = 1.

If you take the to the other side, do you not get ?

if a/b = 0 then a = 0
6. I think some of the above didn't realise you meant:

(ln x) / (x2) = 0

Yeah i did but isnt what they said still true?

This one is correct^ yes. Did you manage to see how the answer was reached after following this?

yeah taking E to both sides got me X = 1, is the rule a/b=0 means a=0 valid for everything

assuming b is non-zero, yes.

Yep what you'll see with a slightly more complex equations is you can use that rule to help:

e.g. (x2+3) / (3-y3) = 0

This means you can just get rid of the bottom and solve for x. I know this different to your question, but that's basically to show that it works.
