Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so notice that the bottom of the second fraction is infact the "difference of two squares" i.e. (a^264)=(x8)(x+8), then multiply the first fraction by x8 so that you have equal denominators then you may add them together simply and simplify if nessecary
