I guess you have to do long division of 2x-4 into x^2 - 4
ugh, why do they make students do this?
(x^2-4)/2x-4) = [(x+2)(x-2)]/2(x-2) = (x+2)/2

thank you both but the question was asking for simplifying not actually solving
that's what we did
the expression is equal to x/2 + 1 (my way ) or equivalently, (x+2) / 2 (his way)
