Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Restrictions are generally invalid things, like negatives under a root or 0 on the botton of a fraction. So find out where the bottom would be 0 and that is the restriction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First, write it out with numbers, letters, and fractions sighs rather than words. Then, factor anything that would be the bottom of a fraction. If it is a 0, then it is restricted. \(\dfrac{{\dfrac{a}{b}}{\dfrac{c}{d}}\) In that: if b is 0, the top fraction is invalid; if d is 0, the bottom fraction is invalid; if c is 0, the bottom of the big fraction is invalid. So in that example, there are three things that can make it invalid. You can do something similar with your question once it is written out that way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oops... \(\dfrac{\dfrac{a}{b}}{\dfrac{c}{d}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1[(3x^2 + 12x + 9)/(x^2  4)]/[(4x + 4)/(x + 2)] So, any place (x^2  4), (4x + 4), or (x + 2) is = 0 is undefined. Each of those would make the bottom of the fraction into 0, which breaks rules.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x \neq1\] is that right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 is undefined, so restricted. THat is the 4x+4 one. 4(1)+4 = ? 4+4 = ? 0 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so it would be 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 is a restriction so it is not the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you find the three restrctions then you can pick what is left over as an answer... OR you can put in all the answers and see which one works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Another way to check this sort of question is with a graphing tool. However, you need to know the math so that you can get the answer when there is no tool availble.
