(x-2)/(x+3)=(x-5)/(x+5);
(x- 2)(x + 5) = (x - 5)(x + 3);
x^2 + 5x - 2x - 10 = x^2 + 3x - 5x - 15;
x^2 + 3x - 10 = x^2 - 2x - 15;
x^2 - x^2 + 3x + 2x = -15 + 10;
5x = -5;
x = -5/5;
x = -1

How do phobias differ from fears?
Weegy: The key to distinguishing a fear from a phobia is that that while most people get the jitters if a spider crawls on their arm, [ people suffering from arachnophobia - the fear of spiders - are physically and/or psychologically impaired by it. "To be defined as a phobia, the fear must cause some level of impairment," says Wilson. "I had a woman come in who was afraid of spiders, and it got to the point where she wouldn't go out at night because she couldn't see where they were." source: webMD ] (More)
