i need help on my help on my homework.

the question is SOLVE: 1/x+1=5/2

there is a couple of questions like this one this in my homework, and this is the first one. so i figure that if i can get help on this one that i will be able to do the rest on my own? i would be very grateful if someone could help me please?

ps "/" means divided and then on the second bit it's "5 over 2" thanks.

Well this question is about solving equations so what we need to do first is get x by itself on the left hand side of the equation. We need to take the +1 over to the right hand side where it will become -1 (inverse rule) so the equation is now 1/x = 5/2 - 1 5/2 is the same as 5 divided by 2 which is 2.5 so 2.5 - 1 = 1.5 or 3/2 as a fraction so 1/x = 3/2 now we need to multiply the denominators by the opposite numerators (kriss kross) so we get 2 x 1 = 3 x X 2 = 3X no we divide both sides by 3 so x = 2/3

The area of a forest covered by rhododendron is being monitored. The number of hectares of forest covered by rhododendron, N, is modelled by the equation N= 150+8 In (4t + 1)- 0.8t^2, t>0 where t is the number of months after monitoring began. Use the equation of the model to answer parts (a) to (d). (a) Find the area of the forest covered by rhododendron when monitoring began. The number of hectares of forest covered by rhododendron reaches its maximum value after T years. (b) (i) Show that Tis a solution of the equation 32P+8t- 160 = 0 ii) Hence find the maximum area of the forest covered by rhododendron. The area of the forest covered by rhododendron is zero after P years. (c) Show that P lies in the interval [15, 16] The iteration formula tn+1187.5+10n(41, +1) with t1 = 15 is used to find the value of P (d) Find the value of P to 3 decimal places.
