Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got the answer x^29x18/(x+3)(x+1) .. Its wrong. 6x is the correct part not 9x... How is it 6x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this? \[\frac{ 3x }{ x^2+4x+3 }\frac{ x6 }{ x+1 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factor on the right and get a common denominator \[\frac{ 3x }{ (x+3)(x+1) }\frac{ (x6)(x+3) }{ (x+3)(x+1) }\] combine into one fraction \[\frac{ 3x((x6)(x+3)) }{ (x+3)(x+1) }\] foil \[\frac{ 3x(x^26x+3x18) }{ (x+3)(x+1) }\] distribute the negative \[\frac{ 3xx^2+6x3x+18 }{ (x+3)(x+1) }\] combine like terms \[\frac{ x^2+6x+18 }{ (x+3)(x+1) }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay I see how you got 6.. But why did you put 6 before 3? I have  (x6)(x+3)== (x^2+3x6x18)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What your saying isnt right.. Your answer> 3+63=6 Mine>3+36=0 By changing where the numbers go gives a completely different number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wouldn't know what yours is, or how you got it because you haven't shown me any work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All you had to do was ask.. x^2+4x+3= (x+3)(x+1) 3x/ (x+3)(x+1)  x6/x+1 * (x+3)/(x+3) 3x(x6)(x+3)/ (x+3)(x+1) 3x(x^2+3x6x18/ (x+3)(x+1) 3x6x=3 x^29x18/(x+3)(x+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no offense, but you're asking the question. I really shouldn't have to ask to see your work. This is your 4th line: 3x(x^2+3x6x18)/ (x+3)(x+1) You have to distribute the  sign. It's kind of like a 1 in front of the parentheses. 3x 1(x² + 3x  6x  18) 3x  x²  3x + 6x + 18 Just the x terms is 3x  3x + 6x so the whole numerator is x² + 6x + 18
