no teo numbers multiply together to get 15
hint one of them is -3 -3 + x = -8 -3 * x = 15
-5
yeah, so you factor the numerator as (x-5)(x-3), now can you simplify the expression?
i dont get how to simplify
Ok, its kind of like .. (5*3) / 5, how do you simplify that?
the answer would be 3
so the answer would be x-3
Yeah, because you can just cross out the 5's, because you multiply then divide by 5 Its the same thing here: (x-5)(x-3) ------- (x-5) Any idea how to do it now?
so the answer would be x-3 ??
Yup :), get it?
ya thanks so much
