when you're subtracting rationals, do you make it into a plus sign and make EVERYTHING in the numerator of the second negative, or just make 1 number negative?
for examples
x1 4x+2
  
x(x3) x(x3)
would you make it into a plus sign, and then make 4x and 2 negative?
4x2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1should be \[\frac{x+2}{x}=\frac{x1}{x}\frac{4x+2}{x(x3)}\] \[(x+2)(x3)=(x1)(x+3)4x2\] \[x^2x6 = x^22 x5\] \[x6=2x5\] \[x=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait what? i get x^2x6=x^28x+1 i keep on looking it over but i can't figure it out darn it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so, (x3) and (x+2) equal x^2x6. (x1) and (x3) euqlas x^24x+3. then when i combine them x^2x6=x^24x+3x4x2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok now you have caught me in two mistakes, so i am going to quit. you are right it is \[(x+2)(x3)=(x1)(x3)4x2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then i combine like terms and get x^2x6=x^28x+1
