If 14/(3x-1)=17x, what is the value of x

First, you want to get rid of the denominator. You can do this by multiplying both sides of the equation by (3x-1). You are left with 17x(3x-1) = 14. Multiplying 17x by 3x-1 gives you 51x^2 -17x=14. Subtracting both 14 from both sides of the equation results in 51x^2 -17x -14 = 0. You are now ready to use the quadratic formula (x=(-b+/- sqrt(b^2-4ac))/2a). (17+ sqrt17^2 -(4*51*-14))/2*51. x= 0.72, -0.38
