question
Which solution to the equation 1/x-1=x-2/2x2-2 is extraneous
answer
x=1
question
Working alone, it would take Shandra 45 minutes to mow the lawn. To mow the same lawn, also working alone, it would take Kelly 1 hour and 15 minutes. If they work together, the girls believe it will take them 1 hour to mow the lawn. Which best describes the reasonableness of their solution?
answer
Their estimate is longer than the time it will actually take: 1/0.75+1/1.25=1/time to complete together

question
Yumi and Juan pick up litter along the highway at the same rate. Yumi picks up litter for 3 miles and takes two hours longer than Juan, who picks up litter for 2 miles. If it took Juan x hours, how long did it take Yumi?
answer
6hrs
question
A student solves the following equation for all possible values of x: 8/x+2=2/x-4 His solution is as follows: Step 1: 8(x - 4) = 2(x + 2) Step 2: 4(x - 4) = (x + 2) Step 3: 4x - 16 = x + 2 Step 4: 3x = 18 Step 5: x = 6 He determines that 6 is an extraneous solution because the difference of the numerators is 6, so the 6s cancel to 0. Which best describes the reasonableness of the student's solution?
answer
His solution for x is correct, but in order for 6 to be an extraneous solution, one denominator has to result in 0 when 6 is substituted for x.
question
What causes a solution to a rational equation to be an extraneous solution?
answer
If a solution results in zero when substituted into the denominator of the equation, the solution is extraneous.
question
What are the solutions to the equation x-7/x=6
