Oh yeah, I didn't see the (x+2) that would cancel on both sides...thanks for the help!

Ok these were my steps... (im going to explain in words instead of pictures because it took me forever to post that last message) 1. factored the 4-x^2 into -(x+2)(x-2). 2. then i multiplied top and bottom of x/(x-2) by -(x+2) so now it also has the -(x+2)(x-2) denominator. 3. then i combined the fr...

Problem: \frac{x}{x\, -\, 2}\, +\, \frac{2x}{4\, -\, x^2}\, =\, \frac{5}{x\, +\, 2} I can usually solve these kinds of problems pretty easily, but I got stuck with this one and when I checked the answer it was imaginary... I made a common denominator of -(x-2)(x+2) on the left side and then combined...

Hello everyone, I looked everywhere online and nobody properly explains how to solve trig inequalities, and i'm still stuck. This is the problem... 2sin 2 x > sinx , 0 < x < 2pi I got to this point... sinx(2sinx - 1) > 0 I then split the two expressions and solved, which gave me solutions of 0, pi, ...
