    To solve this we can start by breaking it up

    -12x^4/x^4 = -12

    -12x^4/8x^5 = -3/2x

    Is that the answer?

    no. now we have to put the parts back together (-12 + -3/(2x)) or (-12/ + -12/(8x) this equals -12/1+8x

    How did you do that? I have a lot of problems like this one.

    additionally anything that will make the the bottom of the fraction 0 will not be a solution so x cannot equal 1/8 however 0 can be a solution because the bottom still equals 1 when x = 0

    Okay, thank you. So is it -12/1+8x where x does not equal -1/8 or is it -12/1+8x where x does not equal -1/8,0 ?

    x can equal 0 because the denominator will equal 1 which will give you a solution answer is A
