Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can split up the numerator \[\implies \frac{x+1  1}{x+1}\] now split up the fraction \[\implies \frac{x+1}{x+1}  \frac{1}{x+1}\] does that give you a hint?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like i said \[\frac{x}{x+1} \implies \frac{x+1  1}{x+1} \implies \frac{x+1}{x+1}  \frac{1}{x+1} \implies 1 \frac 1{x+1}\]
