Answer :


Taking LCM,







By Transposition,


4(2x2 + 2) = 17(x2 – 2x)


8x2 + 8 = 17x2 – 34x


17x2 – 8x2 – 34x – 8 = 0


9x2 – 34x – 8 = 0


9x2 – 36x + 2x – 8 = 0


9x(x – 4) + 2(x – 4) = 0


(9x + 2)(x – 4) = 0


This gives 2 equations,


i. 9x + 2= 0



ii. x – 4 = 0


x = 4


Hence, or x = 4
