Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 2x }{ x+4 } \times \frac{ 3x }{ 3x} = \frac{ 6x }{ 3x^2 + 12x }\] Why wouldn't this be right, I forgot?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1only 3x isn't the common denominator both fractions hve different denominator so multiply them that would be the common denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @kaylaprincess \[\frac{ 2x }{ x+4 } \times \frac{ 3x }{ 3x} = \frac{ 6x }{ 3x^2 + 12x }\] Why wouldn't this be right, I forgot? \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) now multiply the numerator and denominator by x+4 so basically they separatd one step into 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or one step \[\huge\rm \frac{ 2x(3x)(x1)(x+4) }{ 3x(x+4)}\]
