the one on top
anonymous
  • anonymous
are you trying to reduce it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is the problem asking you to do?
ExoticInspirit
  • ExoticInspirit
simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
you can't do anything with the x's because the 12 doesn't have an x. You can cancel out the gcf of the numbers 4,12, and 6

this|dw:1437445105522:dw|

  • ExoticInspirit
i did this so far im not sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's right. then the 2's cancel
ExoticInspirit
  • ExoticInspirit
oh do i need to divide the 2 and 3 after i cancel out the other twos
anonymous
  • anonymous
no I'd leave it as\[\frac{ 2x-6 }{ 3x }\]
ExoticInspirit
  • ExoticInspirit
cant i simplify it more?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can split the fraction, but I don't know if that's actually simpler

then reduce each of those

than i can cross out the twos? and it would equal 3x
anonymous
  • anonymous
no you can't do that. you have to reduce each fraction individually|dw:1437445441349:dw|

  • ExoticInspirit
oh i see but cant i simplify it even more? like subtract 2-2 and 3-x
ExoticInspirit
  • ExoticInspirit
and if i cant do you know the reason why
anonymous
  • anonymous
no. remember to subtract fractions you need a common denominator. 3x was the common denominator before we split the fractions
ExoticInspirit
  • ExoticInspirit
but if i was multiplying would it work if i did 2(2) and 3(x)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes that works for multiplication.
ExoticInspirit
  • ExoticInspirit
oh okay thank you so very much
anonymous
  • anonymous
you're welcome
