1/(x+1)+4=17/(x+1)

restriction

solution set

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1/(x+1)+4=17/(x+1) where x is not equal to -1 (That's the restriction)

Now to solve, we multiply everything by x+1 to eliminate the denominators

1 + 4(x+1) = 17

1 + 4x + 4 = 17

4x = 12

x = 3

so, the solution set is {3}

restrction? and should solution set have 2 answers?

The restriction is x not equal to -1

There is only one solution. If this were a quadratic equation then there would be 2 solutions.
