its 3 over x + 13 over x11 and I am just supposed to simplify.

given \[\frac{ 3 }{ x } + \frac{13}{x11}\] we can multiply any term by 1, right? We want a common denominator, so try multiplying each term by a version of 1... \[\frac{x11}{x11}\] and \[\frac{x}{x}\] respectively to see what happens.

If you don't have a value for x your answer should still include x. When you multiplied (x11)/(x11) and x/x what did you end up with?

3x33 over x^211x + 13x over x^211x

willowdavis97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
would that be it or could i simplify more.

Perfect. Now that you have a common denominator, you can combine your two fractions into one, combining like terms in your numerator: [(3x33)+13x]/(x^211x)

oh okay, so in the end it would be 16x33 over x^211x?

exactly! That's as simple as you can get. :) Good work
