can work be shown please? im struggling with this type of problem

OpenStudy (anonymous):

You want to solve for x=?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes

OpenStudy (phi):

If you typed it in correctly, then there is no solution for x. Think about it : stuff + 5 = 5 so stuff must be zero. 6/(2x+10) must be zero, so x must be infinity (which is not a number)

thanks Phi.

OpenStudy (phi):

@MDE: you must multiply by (2x+10) to clear the fraction adding (2x+10) to both sides gives you 6/(2x+10) = (2x+10)
