Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats an expression, not an equation :) that can be simplified. try multiplying x to each term in numerator and denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why is it x ? how do i rationalize the denominator ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we're just simplifying the expression, unless we know whether x is rational or not, we can't say whether denominator is rational or not... why is it x?? i see 1/x in the expression, to simplify it, i wanted to multiply it with x but then i need to multiply everything with x to balance things out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does the order matter ? the answer is 1+x/x+4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Order does matter, if the problem is as I wrote it, that is the fraction 1/(x + 1) is divided by the fraction 1/(x+4) you invert the divisor and proceed as is multiplication, Doing this results in what I have posted.
