$\frac{ x }{ x^2 }+\frac{ 6x }{ x(1-x) }$ Once you factor you can see the the common denominator is x²(1-x). Multiply the first fraction by (1-x)/(1-x) and the second by x/x to get a single denominator. $\frac{ x(1-x) }{ x^2(1-x) }+\frac{ 6x(x) }{ x(1-x)(x) }$

$\frac{ x-x^2+6x^2 }{ x^2(1-x)}$

can you simplify from here?

5. anonymous

yes give me sec :)

-5x+6/(x-1) (x+1)

not sure what you did. The denominator was already factored. Combine like terms in the numerator, then factor it.

Can you step by step @peachpl

Picking up from the last equation I posted |dw:1433981590135:dw|
