Any ideas?

- 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

yes, yes... i see

- anonymous

Wouldn't the answer be \[\frac{ x^2 }{ 2x+2}\]

- anonymous

well, are you able to flip the fraction (1/X) into (X/1) and multiply that to (X/X=2)?

- anonymous

I don't know, would it?

- Rhystic

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

- anonymous

ye

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

- anonymous

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

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

Algebra 2

- anonymous

Oh snap, ur darn near 18 and only taking Algebra 2?

- anonymous

U should be in Calc by now at least

- anonymous

Anyway

- anonymous

what do you mean only? Algebra 2 is the regular math for my age! I'm only a junior

- 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

We start with Geometry as a freshman :P. And a lot of us double up our maths too

- anonymous

well good for you I don't care. don't come into my questions and insult me

- anonymous

hahahaha calm down, i didnt mean to insult u. Sorry if i did

- anonymous

I'm in the correct math for my age and yes you did insult me.

- anonymous

Ok. well... would you prefer i continue to assist you with this problem, or leave?

- anonymous

Im fine either way, because we're both getting a little worked up here

- anonymous

I would be fine with you leaving.....
17 = junior = algebra 2
this is how it is where I am from

- anonymous

you can tell me I'm ugly and annoying but don't insult my academics.

- Rhystic

so your first step just find the least common denomitor for all three fractions. What do you get for this?

- 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|

- Rhystic

sorry the drawing is really crude

- anonymous

I already go the answer @Rhystic
