Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example \[\frac{1}{x+5}+\frac{10}{x^2+5x}\rightarrow\frac{1}{x+5}+\frac{10}{x(x+5)}\] the common Denom. is x(x+5) so all we need to do is multiply the first term by (x/x) \[\frac{1}{x+5}+\frac{10}{x(x+5)}\rightarrow\frac{1}{x+5}\frac{x}{x}+\frac{10}{x(x+5)}\]\] \[\frac{x}{x(x+5)}+\frac{10}{x(x+5)}=\frac{5+10}{x(x+5)}=\frac{15}{x(x+5)}\]
