sure! do you know how to factor out the quadratic equations ?

3. anonymous

not really, I need to be shown the step to understand it

4. Nnesha

$\huge\rm \frac{ 3x+4 }{ 15x^2+26x+8 }$ first we should factor out the denominator

5. anonymous

Right, but I would need to do something like (x+ ) (x+ )

6. anonymous

?

7. Nnesha

well not for this one bec leading coefficient isn't one

8. Nnesha

you have to apply the AC method ( find two numbers when you multiply them you should get the product of AC but when you add or subtract them you should get the middle term )

9. anonymous

well I have to go, but pls leave the steps sorry

oh well i can wait :)
