the one on top

- anonymous

are you trying to reduce it?

- anonymous

what is the problem asking you to do?

- ExoticInspirit

simplify

- 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

- ExoticInspirit

i did this so far im not sure

- anonymous

that's right. then the 2's cancel

- ExoticInspirit

oh do i need to divide the 2 and 3 after i cancel out the other twos

- anonymous

no I'd leave it as\[\frac{ 2x-6 }{ 3x }\]

- ExoticInspirit

cant i simplify it more?

- anonymous

You can split the fraction, but I don't know if that's actually simpler

- anonymous

- anonymous

then reduce each of those

- ExoticInspirit

|dw:1437445369327:dw|

- ExoticInspirit

than i can cross out the twos? and it would equal 3x

- 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

and if i cant do you know the reason why

- anonymous

no. remember to subtract fractions you need a common denominator. 3x was the common denominator before we split the fractions

- ExoticInspirit

but if i was multiplying would it work if i did 2(2) and 3(x)

- anonymous

yes that works for multiplication.

- ExoticInspirit

oh okay thank you so very much

- anonymous

you're welcome
