Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what I've done so far is (w+6)(w+4) / (w+1)(w30) + 8/w5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is your equation \[\frac{ w^2 + 2w 24 }{ w^2 + w 30 } + \frac{ 8 }{ w5 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If that's the case, the way you broke up \[w^2 + w  30 \] is incorrect.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you multiply out the way you broke it up You get \[w^2  29w 30\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I cross out w+6 because it's on in denominator and other one? so it would be w+4 / w5 + 8/w5? what do I do next? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can add the numerators of fractions with the same denominators. so it should be (w+4 +8)/(w5)
