Yes, this works, with one;

1 plus 1 over 1 = 2

No, it does not work with numbers over 2.

2 plus 1 over 2 = 1.5

3 plus 1 over 3 = 1.33333333...

4 plus 1 over 4 = 1.25

5 plus 1 over 5 = 1.2

x + 1/x = 2

Multiply throuigh by 'x'

Hence

x^2 + 1 = 2x

x^2 - 2x + 1 = 0

It is now in quadratic form . Factor

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

x - 1 = 0

x = 1

The answer !!!!!
