Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would think that you could just use x as a common denominator: \[10/x2x/xx ^{2}/x\] If you simplify this: \[10/x2x\] You just separate the terms out with a common denominator of x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The entire top part of the expression is over x, correct? You can separate each top term so that each is individually over x. so, 10/x is one term, 2x/x is another, and x^2/x is the third. The second two simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The second term should be 2x/x = 2. It should be 2.
