# RATL 3 | Lesson 2 | Try This! (Solve Rational Equations) Solutions

Solutions:

For both problems, you should have identified any restrictions on the domain.

You should have noted that $$x\neq{0}$$. Did you use the quadratic formula or completing the square on b?

The answers to this problem are

1. $$x=\dfrac{3+\sqrt{129}}{6} , \, x=\dfrac{3-\sqrt{129}}{6}$$
2. Did you notice that $$a\neq{-3},2$$.     Solution to this equation is $$a=7$$.
