First, add c to each side of the equation to isolate the x term while keeping the equation balanced:
axc+c=b+c
ax0=b+c
ax=b+c
Now, divide each side of the equation by a to solve for x while keeping the equation balanced:
axa=b+ca
axa=b+ca
x=b+ca
Or
x=ba+ca

Add c in both sides, we get ax - c + c = b + c
ax=b+c
axa=b+ca
x=b+ca

Find the domain of g ( x ) = ln ( x x 1 )
I know the argument of the function has to be greater than 0, so:
( x x 1 ) > 0 x > 0
however in this case x 1, x 0 as they result in an answer which is undefined, so I think it's reasonable for me to say the domain is x > 1, however this is not the correct answer.
