The given equation is either linear or equivalent to a linear equation. Solve the equation. (If there is no solution, enter NO SOLUTION. If all real numbers are solutions, enter REALS.)

4/x -3= 6/x + 9

7/x-2= 8/x+4

2/x+1 minus 1/5=  1/6x  +6

4/x-3=6/x+9

-3-9=6/x-4/x

-12=2/x

-12x=2

x=-1/6 REALS not linear but equivalent to a linear equation

7/x-2=8/x+4

-2-4=8/x-7/x

-6=1/x

-6x=1

x=-1/6 REALS not linear but euivalent to a linear equation


2/x+1-1/5=1/6x+6

2/x-1/6x=-1+1/5+6

12x/6x -1/6x=7.2

12x-1  /6x =7.2

12x-1 =43.2x

12x-43.2x=1

-31.2x/1

x=-1/31.2 Not real 

Each equations show their proper steps it is REAL

7/x-2=8/x+4 i sepereated it, my bad i didnt realize you used spaces instead of brackets

7/(x-2)-8/(x+4)=0

7(x+4)-8(x-2) / (x-2)(x+4)=0

7x+28-8x+16=0

-x+44=0

x=44

2/(x+1)  -1/5 = 1/(6x+6)

2/(x+1)-1/(6x+6)=1/5

6x+6 = 6(x+1) so times the first by 6

12/(6x+6)-1/(6x+6)=1/5

11/(6x+6)=1/5

11=1/5(6x+6)

11=1.2x+1.2

11-1.2=1.2x

9.8=1.2x

8.166667x
