# Solve the Following Quadratic Equations by Factorization: (X-1)/(X-2)+(X-3)/(X-4)=3 1/3, X ≠ 2, 4 - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

ConceptSolutions of Quadratic Equations by Factorization

#### Question

Solve the following quadratic equations by factorization:

(x-1)/(x-2)+(x-3)/(x-4)=3 1/3, x ≠ 2, 4

#### Solution

We have been given

(x-1)/(x-2)+(x-3)/(x-4)=3 1/3

3(x2 - 5x + 4 + x2 - 5x + 6) = 10(x2 - 6x + 8)

4x2 - 30x + 50 = 0

2x2 - 15x + 25 = 0

2x2 - 10x - 5x + 25 = 0

2x(x - 5) - 5(x - 5) = 0

(2x - 5)(x - 5) = 0

Therefore,

2x - 5 = 0

2x = 5

x = 5/2

or,

x - 5 = 0

x = 5

Hence, x = 5/2 or x = 5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
