## jimsolo16 2 years ago medal to however can help me with 3 questions 1 simplify the rational expression,state any restrictions on the variable x^2+8x+16 over x^2-2x-24 2 what is the quotient in simplified form state any restrictions on the variable x^2-5x+6 over x^3 divided by x^2+3x-10 over \$y^2 3 simplify the complex fraction 1+2overxover2+3over2x

I'll try to help.

Any ideas?

3. jimsolo16

no :(

4. skullpatrol

Have you covered factoring polynomials?

5. jimsolo16

nah this is like a pre learning thing and i have to show the work which is the main problem

6. Meinme

Its very easy dude

7. Meinme

x^2 + 4X + 4X + 16 X(X+4) + 4(X+4) (X+4) (X+4)

8. Meinme

do other like wise

9. jimsolo16

ok so that was one? and i do the others the same?

10. Meinme

yes

11. jimsolo16

so how did x^2+8x+16 over x^2-2x-25 become x^2+4x+4x+16?

12. Meinme

no that was for the numerator you'll have to do the process for denominator too..............I was just showing you a way................ and restriction will be that denominator cant be zero
