anonymous one year ago Express the sum in the simplest form. 3x/x+5 + 7/x+5

I s your expression like this: $\frac{{3x}}{{x + 5}} + \frac{7}{{x + 5}}$

@Michele_Laino Yes

3. Michele_Laino

in that case, since the denominators are equal each other, then you have only to add together 3x and 7, namely: $\frac{{3x}}{{x + 5}} + \frac{7}{{x + 5}} = \frac{{...}}{{x + 5}}$ please complete

So then it will just be 3x+7/x+5 ?

5. Michele_Laino
