Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to first factorize the denominator. Can you do it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, sure! No problem! See : I've denominator as : \((4x + 8).(x^2  9) \) I'll factorize both of them separately. \(4x + 8\) can be written as : \(4(x+2)\) ; Notice what I did... I just took 4 common from both the terms and I was left with (x+2). Clear with this part?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the question you posted is relatively advanced algebra. I'm not really sure how to help you if you aren't even familiar with the basic stuff. :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. now to factor x²  9. There is no common factor, so we have to use another rule. What number times itself is 9?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in other words, what's the square root of 9?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this rule is called a difference of squares. x²  9 = (x  3)(x + 3)
