Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not cross. All we just did was multiply the first fraction (both numerator and denominator) by the x+2. We also multiplied the whole second fraction by x, which was the first fractions denominator. This way they are the same :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1All you need to do is simplify it, btw. And it's easier to leave the denominators like x(x+2) so it's easier to simplify at the end :)
