Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you simplify 12x248x60. divide it by 12 since all of them are divisible by 12. you also simplify 3x224x+45 by dividing it by 3. you'll get x24x5 and x28x+15.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Tabatabachoii You're incorrect. \[\frac{ (x+4)(x3) }{ (x5)(x+4) }\times \frac{ 12(x5)(x+1) }{ 3(x3)(x5) }\] \[=\frac{ 12(x+1) }{ 3(x5) }\] \[=\frac{ 4(x+1) }{ x5 }\]
