Homework Help: Solve for X: X+1/X=90

  1. Jun 14, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Solve for X:

    X+1/X=90


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Multiplying all the terms by X/1, I got: X(2)-90X+1=0

    I don't know where to go from here.

    Thanks!
