@whydude81 , would you help too? pls <3

is it -12x^4/(x^4+8x^5)
anonymous
  • anonymous
To solve this we can start by breaking it up
anonymous
  • anonymous
-12x^4/x^4 = -12
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do we break it up?
anonymous
  • anonymous
-12x^4/8x^5 = -3/2x
anonymous
  • anonymous
-3/(2x)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is that the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no. now we have to put the parts back together (-12 + -3/(2x)) or (-12/ + -12/(8x) this equals -12/1+8x
anonymous
  • anonymous
How did you do that? I have a lot of problems like this one.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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

I moment I have another student how needs assistance
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am back
anonymous
  • anonymous
let me right it out give me a moment
anonymous
  • anonymous
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 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay, thank you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
x can equal 0 because the denominator will equal 1 which will give you a solution answer is A
anonymous
  • anonymous
Would you still like me to explain the problem again
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, please :)
