Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, first you need to set them to the same denominator, you'll get :\[= [2a(a+2)  (a+5)(a2)  (a4)] / a(a+3)(a+2) \]\[= (2a^2 + 4a  a^2  3a + 10  a^2 + 2a  8)/a(a+3)(a+2)\]\[= 3(a+3)/a(a+2)(a+3) = 3/a(a+2)\] that's what I got ._.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or , you move the 2nd portion to the other side and simplify to get the same denom. then cross multiply and you'll get in the end: 5a^2 + 12a  9 = 0 then a = 3/5 and a = 3
