Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm \frac{ ? }{ (x+3)(x+2) }\] yes right (x+3) is common and (x+2) stay theredw:1433451813766:dw 2x1 denominator and common denominator are the same so that's why 2x1 stay same at the numerator now x4 ave x+3 at the denominator but not x+2 so multiply (x4) times (x+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did you get x3 and x+3 at the denominator ? what about x+2 and x+3 which is 't the numerator ?
