1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data (1/x-3)+(1/x+3)=(10/x²-9) 2. The attempt at a solution (1/x-3)+(1/x+3)=(10/x²-9) (1/x-3)+(1/x+3)=(10/(x+3)(x-3)) - I factored the x^2-9 to make it easier to multiply by LCD. x+3+x-3=10 - I multipled both sides by the LCD [(x+3)(x-3)] 2x=10 - Combined like terms x=5 - Divided both sides by 2. Am I wrong or is the book wrong for having the answer as x=2 ?
