yea.

My teacher told me the answer was 2x+8, I was supposed to figure out how to get it

6. anonymous

ok let me see I might have made a careless mistake on min please

7. anonymous

ok

Factoring everything I get (((x-4)(x+4))/(5(x-3)))*(10(x-3)²/(x-4)(x-3))

9. anonymous

after cancellations u get (x+4)2 => 2x+8

Factor all terms that can be factorized, you get: ${x^2-16 \over 5x-15}.{10(x-3)^2 \over x^2-7x+12}={(x-4)(x+4) \over 5(x-3)}.{10(x-3)^2 \over (x-4)(x-3)}$ Now, Cancel any common factors, in the numerator and denominator, you get: $2(x+4)=2x+8$
