It is option b. 2x^2 -x -6 = 0 and the value of x = 2 or -1.5

// Your answer is correct.

3.............4

----- + ------ = 2

x+1.......x+2

.....// Multiply both sides by (x+1)(x+3)

.....// to get rid of the fractions

3(x+2) + 4(x+1) = 2(x+1)(x+2)

3x + 6 + 4x + 4 = 2x² + 6x + 4

2x² - x - 6 = 0...........................ANS (Option b)

3(x+2) + 4(x+1) = 2(x+1)(x+2) =>

7x + 10 = 2x^2 + 6x + 4 =>

2x^2 - x - 6 = 0.

Yup, I agree with you.
