To solve for x in the equation 1/x + 3/(x-1) = 7/2, we can start by finding a common denominator for the fractions. The common denominator is 2x(x-1). Multiplying each term by this common denominator, we get 2(x-1) + 6x = 7x(x-1). Simplifying the equation, we have 2x - 2 + 6x = 7x^2 - 7x. Combining like terms, we get 8x - 2 = 7x^2 - 7x. Rearranging the equation, we have 7x^2 - 15x + 2 = 0. This is a quadratic equation, which can be solved by factoring, completing the square, or using the quadratic formula. Solving for x, we find that x = 1/7 or x = 2/7.
