Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, on the second term so it would look like (3x+12)/(4x18 * (x3)/(x+4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x+12 factors into 3(x+4), so it cancels with the denominator of the right side of the rational expression

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x18 does factor into 2(2x9), but you have no term on the numerator that cancels with this , so it is a waste

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0most rational expressions work exactly the same way, so as long as you can factor polynomials, all you have to do is to see which one divides out and cancel.

anonymous
