# Solve the Following Quadratic Equations by Factorization: 1/(X-2)+2/(X-1)=6/X , X ≠ 0 - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

ConceptSolutions of Quadratic Equations by Factorization

#### Question

Solve the following quadratic equations by factorization:

1/(x-2)+2/(x-1)=6/x , x ≠ 0

#### Solution

We have been given

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

x2 - x + 2x2 - 4x = 6(x2 - x - 2x + 2)

3x2 - 13x + 12 = 0

3x2 - 9x - 4x + 12 = 0

3x(x - 3) - 4(x - 3) = 0

(3x - 4)(x - 3) = 0

Therefore,

3x - 4 = 0

3x = 4

x = 4/3

Or,

x - 3 = 0

x = 3

Hence, x = 4/3 or x = 3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
