LET US SOLVE FIRSTLY THE NUMERATOR: 1/x -1 = (1-x)/1 AND DENOMINATOR : (x-1) (1-x)/(x-1) that is -1/x

no. reread the question. ((1/x)-1)/(x-1)

((1/x)-1)/(x-1)=((1-x)/x)/(x-1)=(1-x)/x x 1/(x-1) --- because (1/b)/c =(1/b)x(1/c)=1/bc --- hence you get (1-x)/x x 1/(x-1)=(-(x-1))/x x 1/(x-1) after you have simplified with (x-1) you get -1/x hope that you have understood it
