Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok first see if you can factor the numerator to do this you need to think of 2 numbers with a product of 24 and a sum of + 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{v^2 +2v 24}{3(v^2  11v + 24)}\] then factor each quadratic... for the numerator find the factors of 24 that add to 2... the larger factor is positive for the denominator find the factors of 24 that add to  11, both factors are negative. then see if there are any common factors that can be removed.
