Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes im stuck at this part 2x  1 2x + 5    (2x + 5)(2x  5) (2x  1)(2x + 5) What do i do after?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all im asking is that do you multiply the numerators by all the denominators eg. (2x  1) (2x + 5)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or just one denominator and yes razor this is algebra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0common denominator will be (2x+5)(2x5)(2x1) (2x1)^2(2x+5)(2x5)/ (2x+5)(2x5)(2x1) 4x^24x+14x^2+25/(2x+5)(2x5)(2x1) 264x/(2x+5)(2x5)(2x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u hav (2x+5)(2x5) as the denominator of the 1st part. the common denominator is (2x+5)(2x5)(2x1). u havnt nly 2x1 in the 1st part but which u hav in the common denominator. so multiply the numerator of the 1st nly by 2x1.
