Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Each of these factor, so we have: \[(x5)(x+5)/(x1)(x5) * (x1)(x+1)/(x1)(x1)\] the (x5)'s cancel out on the first one, and the (x1)'s cancel out on the 2nd one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[((x  5)(x +5))/((x  5)(x+1)) = (x + 5)/(x + 1)\] \[((x + 1)(x1))/(x  1)(x 1)) = (x+1)/(x1)\] (x + 10 will cancel leaving (x+5)/(x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(x^225)(x^21)=(x+5)(x5)(x1)(x+1)\] \[(x^26x+5)(x^22x+1)=(x5)(x1)(x1)(x1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2  2x + 1 is a perfect square (x1)^2 or (x 1)(x1)
