# Solve the Following Quadratic Equations by Factorization: 1/(X+4)-1/(X-7)=11/30 , X ≠ 4, 7 - Mathematics

Course

#### Question

Solve the following quadratic equations by factorization:

1/(x+4)-1/(x-7)=11/30 , x ≠ 4, 7

#### Solution

We have been given

1/(x+4)-1/(x-7)=11/30

(-11)/(x^2-3x-28)=11/30

-30 = x2 - 3x - 28

x2 - 3x - 28 + 30 = 0

x2 - 3x + 2 = 0

x2 - 2x - x + 2 = 0

x(x - 2) - 1(x - 2) = 0

(x - 1)(x - 2) = 0

Therefore,

x - 1 = 0

x = 1

or,

x - 2 = 0

x = 2

Hence, x = 1 or x = 2.
