Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then I get (2x1(sqrtx))/(2*(1+(sqrtx)))/(x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as x> 1 we need to determine if the top can control it..... does it factor...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02a^2 a 1 ; a=sqrt(x) (a2/2)(a+1/2) a = 1, 1/2 sqrt(x) = 1, 1/2; i agree

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(sqrt(x)1) (2sqrt(x)+1)  2 (sqrt(x)+1) (x1) we are closer i think lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you cancel out the 2(sqrtx+1) on top and bottom.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x  sqrt(x)) 1  2 (1+sqrt(x)) (x1) (sqrt.x 1)(2sqrt.x +1)  (sqrt.x +1) (2x2) (sqrt.x 1)(2sqrt.x +1)  2x sqrt(x) 2sqrt(x) +2x 2 (sqrt.x 1)(2sqrt.x +1)  2(x sqrt(x) sqrt(x) +x 1) this is my thougths so far; the bottom factors by grouping maybe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02[sqrt(x)(x1) + 1(x1)] 2 (sqrt(x)+1) (x1).... somehow this converts to: 2(sqrt(x)1)(sqrt(x)+1)^2
