Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 / (a+3)  (a+5)(a2) / (a+3)(a+2) = (a4) / (a)(a+3) 2  (a+5)(a2) / (a+2) = (a4) / a 2(a+2) / (a+2)  (a+5)(a2) / (a+2) = (a4) / a 2a + 4  (a^2 +3a  10) / (a+2) = (a4) / a 2a + 4  a^2  3a + 10 / (a+2) = (a4) / a a^2  a + 14 / (a+2) = (a4) / a a^3  a^2 + 14a = (a4)(a+2) a^3  a^2 + 14a = a^2  2a  8 a^3  2a^2 + 14a + 8 = 0 a^3 + 2a^2  14a  8 = 0 I don't think I'm getting 6. Probably did it too fast so I messed up somewhere.
