130/x + 180/x-5 = 5

Apr 15th, 2015

finding the LCM we get

(130+180)/x(x-5)=5

multipling by the denominator to the right hand side and simplyfying, it gives

5x^2+25x-310=0

simplifying further

x^2+5x-62=0

using the quadratic formula  where a=1, b= 5, c=-62

x=(-b+-(b^2-4ac)^0.5)/2a

x= 5.76

or x=-10.76
