Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And ended up with 3(x1) 2x1 But I'm very unsteady with these sorts of things. Check my work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first, factor the denominator of the first rational function. From that you'll know the common denominator of both the functions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm trying to solve it now, and I'll check if we got the same thing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Factored, isn't it (2x1)(x3)? Then the x3s would cancel out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, it should be (2x+1)(x3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it will look like this: dw:1433537147204:dw then since they already have the same denominator, it will be like this: dw:1433537285450:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Would the numerator end up as x+1, or am I taking things to literally?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm let's see.. 3x2(2x+1) > remove the brackets first 3x22x1 > apply the operations with like terms, what is 3x2x? and what is 21?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh! 1x3 ( or just x3), then, not 1. (I'm so awful at math....Thanks for the help..)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^_^ you're not done yet ! so the numerator will be x3, and you also have x3 in the denominator, so it means, they will cancel out and you'll end up with..?
