Is this your question? \[\frac{1-x}{x}=\frac{2-x}{x}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes

OpenStudy (callisto):

Cross multiplication... \[\frac{1-x}{x}=\frac{2-x}{x}\]\[x(1-x)=x(2-x)\]\[x-x^2=2x-x^2\]Can you continue?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

^^ that ends up as x=0

OpenStudy (callisto):

But you need to reject it.... Since a fraction with 0 as a denominator is undefined :|
