When you simplify left hand side you end up with

1/(x-1) = x/(x-1)

and then

(1-x)/(x-1) = 0

To get rid of the denominator you have to multiply by x-1 on both sides, however under the condition that the denominator isn't 0, so x=1 is not a valid solution. There are no solutions.

I wanted to see how many people would read it over the weekend (19 is all)...and yes it was a equation with no way to solve it!
