Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I started by changing it to this format \[\frac{ x }{ x+2 } \div \frac{ 1 }{ x } + \frac{ 1 }{ x+2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't the answer be \[\frac{ x^2 }{ 2x+2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, are you able to flip the fraction (1/X) into (X/1) and multiply that to (X/X=2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so really if you divide the fractions on the bottom its the same as reciprocating them to the top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure @Da_Homie because it looks more like this\[\frac{ x }{ x+2 } \div (\frac{ 1 }{ x } + \frac{ 1 }{ x+2 })\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know where you're from, but here you start with Algebra in freshman, geometry in sophomore and algebra 2 in junior.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We start with Geometry as a freshman :P. And a lot of us double up our maths too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so your first step just find the least common denomitor for all three fractions. What do you get for this?

Rhystic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok @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
