Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[(2  8) / (X+4)] / [(3  12) / (X+4)] = [6 / (X+4)] / [9 / (X+4)] = [6 / (X+4)] * [(X+4) / 9] The (x+4)s cancal out, so you have 6/9 = 2/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[8/(x+4)] * 8x or (8/x) + 4 *8x ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[8/(x+4)] * 8x = 64x / (x+4)[8/(x+4)] * 8x = 64x / (x+4) You can't really simplify further
