Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok good, so at the moment (we might can reduce later) the common denominator will be \(12y\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to build up each fraction just like with numbers \[\frac{x+1}{3y}=\frac{4(x+1)}{4\times 3y}=\frac{4x+4}{12y}\] for the first one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you build up \[\frac{x2}{4y}\]so the denominator will be \(12y\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0repeat with \[\frac{x+3}{6y}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok good, now we are ready to add and subtract the denomiator will be \(12y\) and the numerator will be \[4x+4+3x6(2x+6)\] notice the last parentheses, you still have to distribute the minus sing, then combine like terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is all easy when you know what you are doing when you do not, it is not since you were not born knowing this (i assume) you learn as you do it
