    right so u have \(\huge\frac{ x ^{2}+2x }{12x+54 }-\frac{ 3x }{ 8x+36 }=\frac{ x ^{2}+2x }{6(2x+9) }-\frac{ 3x }{ 4(2x+9) }\) can u figure out next step ?

    before that... \(\huge\frac{ x ^{2}+2x }{6(2x+9) }-\frac{ 3x }{ 4(2x+9) }=\frac{2( x ^{2}+2x) }{12(2x+9) }-\frac{ 4(3x) }{ 12(2x+9) }\) u see how i tried to make the denominator same ?

    i see it i see it it makes sense so then you would take away the denominator?

    • one year ago
  61. hartnn

    take away ? since the denominator is common u combine the numerators. (2x^2+4x-9x)\(12(2x-9))
