you can simplify the top of the fraction by factorization 4a^3x^4+10x^2n  you need to find the gcf of the above 2 terms can you do that?

no could u pls tell how to find it

the gcf is the greatest common factor piecewise we can can write factor of 4 and 10 = 2 because 2 is the greatest number which divides exactly into 4 and 10 do you follow that?

and x^2 also but how will it go further

cwrw238 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
right thats as far as we can go so if we divide the gcf 2x^2 into the top bit we get 4a^3x^4 / 2x^2 = 2a^3x^2 and 10x^2n / 2x^2 = 5n so 4a^3x^4+10x^2n = 2x^2(2a^3x^2 + 5n)

finally putting it all together we have 2x^2(2a^3x^2 + 5n)  5x^6 dividing top and bottom by x^2: = 2(2a^3x^2 + 5n)  5x^4

and thats all??

the last step was necessary because ayushprasad didn't use the lcm as the denominator the lcm (lowest common denominator) of 5x^2 and x^4 is actually 5x^4 not 5x^6
