I think it is the third choice.

2. xapproachesinfinity

$$\huge \frac{1}{x}-\frac{2}{x^2-x}=\frac{1}{x}-\frac{2}{x(x-1)}$$ $$\huge \frac{\color{red}{(x-1)}}{x\color{red}{(x-1)}}-\frac{2}{x(x-1)}$$ $$\huge \frac{(x-1)-2}{x(x-1)}$$

3. xapproachesinfinity

finish the work...

4. xapproachesinfinity

any problem understanding what i did? just tell me i didn't get the line number two or line number 1 i will explain
