Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Walking thru the first fraction 8/(x2). I am going to multiply the denominator by (x+2) getting a new and soon to be common denominator of (x2)(x+2). Now I must do the same to the numerator making it 8(x+2) The first fraction now appears as (8(x+2))/(x2)(x+2) You finish the second fraction and perform the addition. I gotta go.
