writing equations out in English makes it very hard to read.
can you use the equation editor?
how do I do that?
click on the equation button in the lower left of the input area
I couldn't find the "divide" button hahah
anyway, you hopefully know we do not allow "divide by 0" It is not done. in your problem, if you make x certain values, the "bottom" will have a zero and zero times anything is zero and you will have stuff/0 and we don't allow that.
Who would be right??
Do you understand that if you have (for example) (x+1) in the bottom what number (for x) makes x+1 be 0 ?
and if x=-1 we will get in the bottom 0 * (-1-2)*(-1-4) or 0 * -3 * -5 notice the -3 and -5 don't matter, because when we multiply it out we get 0 *0 in the bottom* is not allowed
to prevent the divide by 0, we do not allow x=-1 then what is the answer for that expression when x=-1? answer: we don't have an answer. It is undefined. notice there are two other values that make the bottom 0 we don't allow those either. can you take a guess as to who is right for this question?
