    No, I cannot.
    Can you?


    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    Yes, but your equations are difficult to comprehend, as they are all placed on one line.
    If you rewrite them in a more readable way, members can provide better assistance.

    I don't see any x (other than in the word "example"). Your question doesn't seem to make any sense.

    I think it'll be easier for you (OP) to just take a photo of where the question is from and just post it.

    Edit: And easier for us too.
