Solving rational equations:
(2x+2) (4x^216) (5x5)
   = 
(3x12) (3x^224x+48) (3x^224x+48)
I have the answer already, but I don't know how it came to be
I try to do it by factoring the 3x^224x+48 's and get 3(x^28+16)
then I multiply that by everything, as with the other denominators, and so on
but then I get a huge, incorrect answer
Someone please help even if it's one sentence. I want to get this problem done by tonight

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So from what I see in order to get the same denomanator you must multiply the denomanator and numerator by (x4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you multiply the numerator of the first fraction by 3(x4)^4? This is where i messed up the most I was struggling with factoring because I'm half asleep if you were wondering why I took so long by the way...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope you multiply the numerator and the denomanator of the first term by (x4)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because in the second fraction the denominator I get is 3(x4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we already have a 3 in the denomanator of the first term

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First term denomanator: 3(x4) second term denomanator: 3(x4) (x4)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so all your missing in the first term is the (x4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you're supposed to multiply everything by the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope we have two denomanators and we need them to be the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in order ofor 3(x4) to be equal to 3(x4)^2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we would have to multiply the first term by a (x4)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 3(x4)*(x4)=3(x4)^2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes sort of , do we do that to the numerator too?
