Solving rational equations: (2x+2) (4x^2-16) (5x-5) ------- - ---------- = -------------- (3x-12) (3x^2-24x+48) (3x^2-24x+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^2-24x+48 's and get 3(x^2-8+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

Firstly you can factor out a 3
and then it becomes 3(x-4)^2
and 3x-12 can also be factored

3(x-4)
So from what I see in order to get the same denomanator you must multiply the denomanator and numerator by (x-4)
Did u get that so far
yes and i'm fixing it on my paper... stupid factoring mistakes Thanks!
ok gnite
after this problem goodnight
Do you multiply the numerator of the first fraction by 3(x-4)^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...
nope you multiply the numerator and the denomanator of the first term by (x-4)
what about the 3?
because in the second fraction the denominator I get is 3(x-4)
well we already have a 3 in the denomanator of the first term
First term denomanator: 3(x-4) second term denomanator: 3(x-4) (x-4)
so all your missing in the first term is the (x-4)
how did you get rid of the 3?
I factored it
factor (3x-12) for me
3(x-4)
it is 3(x-4)
ya
so what doesn't make sense
when you're supposed to multiply everything by the denominator
nope we have two denomanators and we need them to be the same
so in order ofor 3(x-4) to be equal to 3(x-4)^2
we would have to multiply the first term by a (x-4)
so 3(x-4)*(x-4)=3(x-4)^2
Is that clear?
yes sort of , do we do that to the numerator too?
yup forsure
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok I see I see
YAY i am so excited
I try to explain concepts but sometimes the person on the other end can't understand
THANK YOU OK I ACTUALLY SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU OK LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW LOOK AT YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR AND SAY HELL YEAH IM AWESOME IM SO GOOD AT MATH THANK YOU OKAY BECAUSE I WAS REALLY STRUGGLING WITH THAT AND NOW I CAN FINALLY SLEEP
NOW IM GOING TO FINISH THIS PROBLEM AND GET THE RIGHT ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!
Oh thanks for the boost I needed that one!!! LOL
lol
someone give rld613 some more medals
i'm going to solve this problem right now afk
I am really not into the medal thing
I just enjoy doing math
its like past 2 am and I am still doing math equations!!! I shld be long in bed
K now that we finished i am going to bed
rld are you still there?
