## anonymous 5 years ago find the difference of x squared -2 over x-2 and 2x over x-2

1. anonymous

$\frac{x^2-2}{x-2} - \frac{2x}{x-2}$?

2. anonymous

if so , then : $=\frac{x^2-2x-2}{x-2} = \frac{(x-2)(x+1)}{x-2}$ $= x+1$ ^_^

3. anonymous

factoring is not right :p

4. anonymous

(x^2 -2x-2)/ (x-2) is as far as you can go. pretty small and disappointing question , usually with questions like those they have lots of factors that cancel and at the end you are left with like one term as you answer
