Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Factor the third denominator to get \[x^2(x1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now the 3 denominators are (x 1)², x, and x²(x 1) the least common denominator needs to have the maximum of each factor. So we need both x and (x 1) twice LCD = \(x^2(x1)^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To make all 3 fraction match the LCD you have to multiply them by different factors. Multiply the first by \[\frac{ x^2 }{ x^2 }\] Multiply the 2nd by \[\frac{ x(x1)^2 }{ x(x1)^2 }\] Multiply the 3rd by \[\frac{ x1 }{ x1 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem is now\[\frac{ x(x^2) }{ x^2(x1)^{2} }+\frac{ 2x(x1) }{ x(x)(x1) }\frac{ (x+1)(x1) }{ x^2(x1)^2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ x^2+2x(x1)(x+1)(x1) }{ x^2(x1)^2 }\] Simplify the numerator and see if anything cancels with the denominator after
