Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, let's try a LCD of\[(x^22)(x4)\]What we get is\[\frac{3x+4}{x^22}  \frac{2}{x4}=\frac{(3x+4)(x4)2(x^22)}{(x^22)(x4)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if there was an equal sign rather than the subtraction sign between the two only then you can do that. That is why this question is puzzling. you are cross multiplying...is that a legal move?
