Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to get a b and c you need to consider the common denominator. a will be a(x(x9)), b(x(x8)) and so on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you get a common denominator multiply the three terms in the numerator out and separate them into coefficients of x^2, x, and the constant, then look at the numerator of the original equation.
