Re: x =

Hi;

x  = 10, x = 8, x = -8, x = -10


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

\frac{c}{c-5}=\frac{4}{c-4}

FInd c.

Also, the LaTeX doesn't seem to work..

Re: x =

If you cross multiply,then you'd get c^2-4c=4c-20 which is c^2-8c+20=0,now you just have to find the polynomial's roots.

Re: x =

Hi;

I am getting

c = 4 - 2 i and c = 4 + 2 i
