Any ideas?
anonymous
  • anonymous
well I started by changing it to this format \[\frac{ x }{ x+2 } \div \frac{ 1 }{ x } + \frac{ 1 }{ x+2 }\]

Looking for something else?

if there wasn't addition in it I would flip the second equation and change it to multiplication, but I don't know what to do because of the addition.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, yes... i see
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wouldn't the answer be \[\frac{ x^2 }{ 2x+2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
well, are you able to flip the fraction (1/X) into (X/1) and multiply that to (X/X=2)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't know, would it?

so really if you divide the fractions on the bottom its the same as reciprocating them to the top.

ye

I'm not sure @Da_Homie because it looks more like this\[\frac{ x }{ x+2 } \div (\frac{ 1 }{ x } + \frac{ 1 }{ x+2 })\]

Well, the way I did it will give you the answer but not actually learning how to do problems like this in the future. But basically I plugged \[\frac{ \frac{ x }{x+2} }{ \frac{ 1 }{ x }+\frac{ 1 }{ x+2 } } \] into my calculator and got 50/11. Then if I plug the rest of the multiple choice answers into my calculator, the only answer to give me 50/11 is C.

Cant u reciprocate it to (X+X+2/1)? and multiply?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't know, that's why I'm asking for help @Da_Homie lol and thank you @lehmad

What class is this for anyway?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Algebra 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh snap, ur darn near 18 and only taking Algebra 2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
U should be in Calc by now at least
anonymous
  • anonymous
Anyway
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you mean only? Algebra 2 is the regular math for my age! I'm only a junior
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't know where you're from, but here you start with Algebra in freshman, geometry in sophomore and algebra 2 in junior.
anonymous
  • anonymous
We start with Geometry as a freshman :P. And a lot of us double up our maths too
anonymous
  • anonymous
well good for you I don't care. don't come into my questions and insult me
anonymous
  • anonymous
hahahaha calm down, i didnt mean to insult u. Sorry if i did
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm in the correct math for my age and yes you did insult me.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok. well... would you prefer i continue to assist you with this problem, or leave?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im fine either way, because we're both getting a little worked up here
anonymous
  • anonymous
I would be fine with you leaving..... 17 = junior = algebra 2 this is how it is where I am from
anonymous
  • anonymous
you can tell me I'm ugly and annoying but don't insult my academics.

so your first step just find the least common denomitor for all three fractions. What do you get for this?
Rhystic
  • Rhystic
Ok @AutumnRoseT To find the LCD the easiest way in this case since you have two denominators that are the same and one different is just multiply the two different denominators together yielding -> x^2+2x or x(x+2) now take that and multiply all of the fractions with it and simplify you should come out with C. |dw:1434040523987:dw|
