$\frac{ x+2 }{x ^{2}-3x-10 }.\frac{ x-3 }{ x ^{2}+x-12}$ $\frac{ x+2 }{ x ^{2}-5x+2x-10 }.\frac{ x-3 }{x ^{2} +4x-3x-12}$ $\frac{ x+2 }{x(x-5)+2(x-5)}.\frac{ x-3 }{ x(x+4)-3(x+4) }$ $\frac{ x+2 }{ (x-5)(x+2) }.\frac{ x-3 }{ (x+4)(x-3)}$

2. anonymous

now this is the simplified form: $\frac{ 1 }{ (x-5)(x+4) }$

Thanks!
