If $x=\frac{a}{b}$, $a\neq b$ and $b\neq 0$, then $\frac{a+b}{a-b}=$

(A) $\frac{x}{x+1}$ (B) $\frac{x+1}{x-1}$ (C) $1$ (D) $x-\frac{1}{x}$ (E) $x+\frac{1}{x}$


$\frac{a+b}{a-b}=$\frac{\frac{a}{b} + 1}{\frac{a}{b} - 1} = \frac{x+1}{x-1}$, so the answer is$\boxed{B}$. The problems on this page are copyrighted by the Mathematical Association of America's American Mathematics Competitions. AMC logo.png
