\[4x-4 \over x-2 \]\[= x+6 \over x+5 \] +2

- anonymous

it's supposed to be a fraction but for some reason it didn't work.

- amistre64

a fraction over a fraction right?

it's 4x-4 over x-2 = x+6 over x+5 (not in fraction form is the +2)

- anonymous

idk why it came up over each other like that. I have the problem presented in a straight line.

- amistre64

\[\frac{4x-4}{x-2} = \frac{x+6}{x+5} ??\]

- anonymous

+2

- anonymous

the 3rd portion of the problem is +2

- amistre64

ok..... the key is to get common denominators straight across.

- amistre64

(4x-4)(x+5) = (x+6)(x-2) + 2(x+5)(x-2)

- amistre64

the common denom fades away to that :)

- amistre64

4xx +16x -20 = xx +4x -12 + 2xx +6x -20

- amistre64

4xx - xx - 2xx = x^2
16x -4x -6x = +6x
-20 +12 +20 = +12
x^2 +6x +12 = 0

-6/2 +- sqrt(36 -4(12))/2 looks to be imaginary solutions; or i messed up calculting :)

- anonymous

just to make sure I enter it correctly into the online assignment, does it look like this. only i type the same thing twice, one + one 0\[-6 \over 2 +\sqrt{36-4(12)}\] over 2

- anonymous

wooh, i think that came out different than I anticipated.. SOrry, is there any way you could post it. ha

- anonymous

i one + and one - btw

- amistre64

\[\frac{-6 \pm \sqrt{-12}}{2}\]

- anonymous

okkk thanks!

- amistre64

\[-3 \pm i \sqrt{3}\]

- anonymous

it wont let me type in the square root of 12 negative.. should that become positive?

- amistre64

that should be the simplified form

- amistre64

-3 (+-) i sqrt(3)

- anonymous

ohhh. So the answer isn't a fraction

- amistre64

the answer can be simplified; how it wants you to input it into the program is probably in simplest form; doe sit want "real" roots? or any roots?

- anonymous

it has 2 spots for answers. so both I supose

- amistre64

both isnt an option :) the 2 spots are most likely for the +sqrt and the -sqrt.

- anonymous

yep, they are. ohh, i see what you're asking. it just says to simplify

- anonymous

sorry i'm so confusing :)

- amistre64

lol

- anonymous

Thanks for your help!
