I know there will be a new common denominator, but I'm pretty sure my simplified answer is incorrect. x=sqrt2 is not what they are looking for I think...?

3. anonymous

this is the last question I can't figure out :/

$\frac{3}{x}-\frac{3}{x+1}=\frac{3(x+1)-3x}{x(x+1)}=\frac{3}{x(x+1)}.$ Just do the next step:)

5. maheshmeghwal9

i mean: -$\frac{3}{x(x+1)}-\frac{3}{x+2}$.

6. maheshmeghwal9

now what do u find?

7. anonymous

-3(x^2-2)/x(x+1)(x+2)???
