Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is what you're trying to say: (C^2(x(20/4)))/x  5/10 ? Could you please write it out in numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Even though there are quadratic formulae there, it's still just dividing fractions. Think of it as: \[\frac{ x ^{2}x2 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ 10 }{ x5}\] and \[\frac{ 10 }{ x5 } \times \frac{ x ^{2}x2 }{ 4 }\] are they equal to each other :)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1:) Well, if you're uncertain, you could try solving both sides. I'd advise doing the fraction division using the equations I wrote in LaTeX up there ^. Fyi, I would say they are equal.
