$\frac{\frac{1}{36}-\frac{1}{x^2}}{\frac{1}{6}+\frac{1}{x}}$

Multiply every term of the numerator and denominator by 36x^2. That will cancel all denominators and simplify the complex fraction.

Thank you!!

yw. You might have to factor and reduce after you get the multiplication done. Always have to check.

$\frac{x^2-36}{6x^2+36x}$

@Pickledgriff Its with MertsJ now :)

Both numerator and denominator will factor.

Ok thank you, the answer is x-6/6x right?

12. Mertsj
