Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{x+2}{x+4}\frac{x1}{x+6}\] Whenever you want to mix a fraction, you should multiply by each other's denominator, as such: \[\frac{(x+2)(x+6)}{(x+4)(x+6)}\frac{(x1)(x+4)}{(x+6)(x+4)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{x^2+8+12}{x^2+10+24}\frac{x^2+3x4}{x^2+10x+24}\] Notice that you could combine the fractions together now because the denominators are the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[=\frac{(x^2+8x+12)(x^2+3x4)}{x^2+10+24}\] \[=\frac{5x+16}{x^2+10+24}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know what it is, you'll have to fill out the blanks, we have the numerator 5x+16, but the 6 and 4 in the denominator is actually in factorised form.
