    you can factor the numerator and you'll get:\[=(x-1)(x-4)/(x-4)\] then you can cancel what you have common from the top and bottom :) and you'll get: \[= (x-1)\] is it clear now? ^_^

    it's : (x-1)(x-4)/(x-1) = (x-4) sorry for the mess :)

    X^2- 5x + 4/x-1 U can write X^2- 5x + 4 as (x-1) . (x-4), then (x-1) . (x-4)/(x-1) = x-4.... sstarica is true japan,,,, its simple question,...

    no, don't say that , it's not true.Look at me for instance, I do silly mistakes such as instead adding I subtract and the vice versa, but then I practiced to stop such things. You'r not an idiot, you just need mroe practice ^_^ and I wish you the best of luck!
