Yes, that's correct.Why do you think that I assumed that x is a positive integer? Why should I've assumed that? How could I assumed that if I got x = -1?

Let me take numbers show two different results for LHS of \(\frac{1}{2 + \frac{1}{x}} = 1\)

x = 1 the fraction becomes 1/3 (overall fraction is now

positive)

x = 0 (fraction is

not a positive integer)

What I inferred from your OE is that you reversed the fraction but I also need to know the sign of denominator.

I think this Q can be solved using simple common sense w/o touching a pen and paper:

1. I need the ratio to be positive.

2. Denominator has to be positive since 1 is positive

3. To satisfy LHS = RHS I need x = -1

I think my original query was based more on ratio than equating LHS and RHS.
