1/x -1 does not equal (1-x)/1

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[1 \div (x-1) \]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

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

jhonyy9 (jhonyy9):

((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
