Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For starters: Multiply 2 by the denominator and put it over the existing denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0visuals??? and can yu tell me what to multiply again its kind of confusing on how yu guys are saying the steps...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(2)(x^2 + 4xy + y^2) and then place this over the denominator along with the existing numerator that is already over the denominator. Do addition and subtraction of like terms. Piece of cake from that point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2\frac{x^2+10xy+7y^2}{x^2+4xy+4y^2}=2\frac{(x+.y)\cancel{(x+..y)}}{\cancel{(x+..y)}(x+...y))}=\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Typo: Look at this instead of my previous post.: (2)(x^2 + 4xy + 4y^2) and then place this over the denominator along with the existing numerator that is already over the denominator. Do addition and subtraction of like terms. Piece of cake from that point. I forgot the "4" in the last term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2My solution will and can incorporate your method if it becomes necessary. Logically, you should do my step first as the resulting numerator will be easier to work with. Then simplification can be done.
