I need to simplify this
anonymous
  • anonymous
this looks easy, but then I just dont seem to get the right answer... strange

Whenever you see something like this, you have to (1) try and factor the polynomials (2) take out any common factors in factors Here,\[\frac{3x+6}{x^2+3x+2} \times \frac{x-1}{2x+8}=\frac{3(x+2)}{(x+2)(x+1)}\times \frac{x-1}{2(x+4)}\]In the first part, you have a common factor of (x+2) in the numerator and denominator. These will divide to 1 (i.e. they cancel), so you're left with\[\frac{3}{x+1}\times \frac{x-1}{2(x+4)}=\frac{3(x-1)}{2(x+1)(x+4)}\]

  • anonymous
I don't think it can be simplifed
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got stuck too ^^"
anonymous
  • anonymous
I just hate these problems.... integration and derivation is even simpler to me than these... :( I guess my brain developed in such a way that I am dumb maths-wise...
anonymous
  • anonymous
when you say divide do you mean this:\[(3x+6)/(x^2+3x+2)\]?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol, it happens, "alot"
anonymous
  • anonymous
calm down... ;p
anonymous
  • anonymous
hold on
anonymous
  • anonymous
(3x+6)=3(x+2) and x^2+3x+2=(x+2)(x+1). Dividing the two you get, 3/(x+1)
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am calm, guys, it is just that I never took time to learn maths proparly, during the last 5 years, I haven't opened a maths textbook at home, and used to day dream in maths classes. This month is the first time in my life that I actually started to study maths at home
anonymous
  • anonymous
but why are you dividing the 2? .-. aren't we supposed to multiply?
anonymous
  • anonymous
and that's good, you should be proud.
anonymous
  • anonymous
loki, why did you divide both the fractions when you're supposed to multiply?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it is good, but I am a few years late.... I used to spend ALL my time learning Computer Science stuff.... like programming (I know fluently C++, C, Assembly, Pascal, and some others), metaphysics...
anonymous
  • anonymous
damn, I should have listened to my mom
anonymous
  • anonymous
nah, you're no late, if you were too, then you won't understand this math you're seeing now :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
not*
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't think I did divide both fractions.
anonymous
  • anonymous
listened to your mom about what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
don't get caught up in the 'few years late' thing
anonymous
  • anonymous
those are the things that get into your head when you are stressed.
anonymous
  • anonymous
go sky diving , you'll need it
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL, back in the days, at school, I used to be quite careless about school.... you know.. never studying at home and stuff... and i remember how my mother used to tell me that I will be sorry :) and I am now :) but no, mimi, i am not stressed at all... I am calm
anonymous
  • anonymous
stress has nothing to do with calmness
anonymous
  • anonymous
how come?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you just have too much in your head right now and you need to filter them all out
anonymous
  • anonymous
thinking too much, just too much, go jog or do some sort of activity to stop that thinking
anonymous
  • anonymous
rest that head of yours
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright... maybe I will stop maths for a while... to clear the mind, and go do some physics instead (i love physics)
anonymous
  • anonymous
NO! lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
no more studying for now,
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think you should keep studying
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright, I got a virtual mom and dad, now, whom should I listen to ... LOL
anonymous
  • anonymous
loki >_> he's been studying for how long now? 2 weeks? time for him to chill a bit
anonymous
  • anonymous
not good, he must have fun the rest of the day :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
the exam's on tuesday
anonymous
  • anonymous
he is chilled
anonymous
  • anonymous
so? what's the point of him studying with that mood of his?
anonymous
  • anonymous
nope he isn't, when I say chill, I say go out and have FUN
anonymous
  • anonymous
is your mood alright, oktal?
anonymous
  • anonymous
he must rest
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am smiling right now, and I think I dont feel like going to do anything else but study, I feel good enough to keep pumping info to my head, so I thing i can just swich to physics and then after some time back to maths... :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
think*
anonymous
  • anonymous
>_>... you're still going to have the day off before the big day
anonymous
  • anonymous
and then chemistry and then English and repeat...
anonymous
  • anonymous
._. loki you're destroying him, it's too much for him
anonymous
  • anonymous
i'm teasing ;p
anonymous
  • anonymous
>_>...
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah, starlet, I will take a monday off... and I actually dont have to study English as it will be an essay... so nothig special, I will just have to concentrate so I dont do stupid spelling mistakes :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good, reached an agreement ^_^
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, and make sure you have a good essay structure too.

  • anonymous
he got it from google >_>
anonymous
  • anonymous
NO, I am serious, it really means that
anonymous
  • anonymous
no it doesn't
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know you're serious, that's what's funny
anonymous
  • anonymous
so you are loughing that I am certain that :@ means french kiss?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's not
anonymous
  • anonymous
laughing :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
if so, then you weren't showing any happy relaxed faces last time andrius >_>
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't find it funny, both of you
anonymous
  • anonymous
-.- relaxed face
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL =D
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's not a relaxed face
anonymous
  • anonymous
Arman does that face all the time
anonymous
  • anonymous
anyway, it is a good thing to give someone a kiss, isn't that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
more like a wth -face
anonymous
  • anonymous
>_> I wonder, if they were kisses, then I would've killed you
anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
o_O<-
anonymous
  • anonymous
right, forgot my own face LOL
anonymous
  • anonymous
=P
anonymous
  • anonymous
so...anyway...did you get the answer to the question you asked?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got an answer, and I got into even better mood, by chatting with you guys
anonymous
  • anonymous
=D
anonymous
  • anonymous
aaawww.... -.-
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's supposed to be "aww ^_^" >_>
anonymous
  • anonymous
you men are seriously weird lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
again, always the opposite
anonymous
  • anonymous
I prefer weird.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I choose what word I want =P
anonymous
  • anonymous
well, males ARE different, I noticed that I just dont get girls sometimes, I do something and she takes it as a big deal, then I dont do something, and she is unhappy again, women are compex....
anonymous
  • anonymous
they're a random variable
anonymous
  • anonymous
quite good descriotion...
anonymous
  • anonymous
no we're not, it depends on the girl's character
anonymous
  • anonymous
ANYTHING can happen in a fraction of a second
anonymous
  • anonymous
not all women are like that you know
anonymous
  • anonymous
I've seen such girls, like the ones you've just mentioned, but there are others that are totally different.
anonymous
  • anonymous
mood and behaviour can change with no reason... out of blue sky.. now she is happy, ten minutes later she is looking at me as if i am a criminal or something
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL!
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol, what the hell are you doing to her then?!
anonymous
  • anonymous
you're exaggerating, not all of them are like that!
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL, nothing bad, the usual
anonymous
  • anonymous
I hope not all
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol, not all of them, if you think that all women are alike, then you'll never meet a girl that you'll like :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
that ryhmes
anonymous
  • anonymous
she might be different, but you have this conclusion abt women that'll blind you from seeing the true her
anonymous
  • anonymous
:D
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm serious, I've seen alot of guys falling in such situations
anonymous
  • anonymous
don't compare, never do that to anyone or anything, just accept him/her/it they way he/she/it are ^_^
anonymous
  • anonymous
well, the thing is, they dont see the real me, and for some reason I dont see the real them :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
then both parties are like mirrors reflting each other's self
anonymous
  • anonymous
reflecting*
anonymous
  • anonymous
of course, it might be (and probably is ) because of my lack of social skills
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, you have great social skills
anonymous
  • anonymous
just change the way you think abt them :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
using computer? maybe. In real life.... hmm... I can get carried away... :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
try to look into other people's beauty and ignore all the other things.
anonymous
  • anonymous
well then hold yourself
anonymous
  • anonymous
carried away?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah LOL
anonymous
  • anonymous
like what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you, loki, didn't get what he said? noway.
anonymous
  • anonymous
like, I start being too open too quick and too personal too quick, so, I start chatting as if the person was my friend for all my life or something...
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol...
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
mimi, you didn;t get what I said too :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
I did
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's not a bad thing, though
anonymous
  • anonymous
I was like that, but I've learnt not to get too personal from the first talk
anonymous
  • anonymous
it can be loki, believe me
anonymous
  • anonymous
and you're aware of it...so you can stop yourself
anonymous
  • anonymous
exactly
anonymous
  • anonymous
well, sometimes when i start chatting I forget about controlling what I say..
anonymous
  • anonymous
but I am improving :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
be professional, to get to know the person, from the way he/she is talking reacting and etc, once you get to know them, you'll know at what level you guys can talk :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's good ^_^ keep it up
anonymous
  • anonymous
:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
good luck
anonymous
  • anonymous
anyways, did you get the answer to your question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got what I was looking for... it was a stupid small mistake .... the reason why it wasn't working for me because I wasn't factorising the quadratic eq right
anonymous
  • anonymous
ah, ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol, it happens =P
anonymous
  • anonymous
and, If I fail my exams and dont get in to uni, I will just become a pirate or something :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
you won't FAIL God DAMN IT!
anonymous
  • anonymous
I would've slapped you by now!
anonymous
  • anonymous
I wouldn't have let you
anonymous
  • anonymous
a pirate? if something negative happens, you will try again
anonymous
  • anonymous
I was just kidding about the pirate
anonymous
  • anonymous
I will get you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know...
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol loki
anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
going off now
anonymous
  • anonymous
np
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have told you before, I'll get you down one way or another and you'll see, I don't stop from the first try
anonymous
  • anonymous
bye and good luck
anonymous
  • anonymous
there is only one way you could get me down, but even that one is not easy
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok, good luck to you both
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't care, I'll give it a try
anonymous
  • anonymous
LOL :)
