Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the original expression is this right? \[\Large \frac{x+2}{y+3} + \frac{3x1}{y+3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have the correct answer assuming you meant to write \[\Large \frac{4x+1}{y+3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Did i get this one right too? 3/x+1 + 4/x+1.... the answer is 7/x+1 ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1use parenthesis to indicate you are dividing by all of "x+1" `3/x+1` is NOT the same as `3/(x+1)`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large 3/x + 1 = \frac{3}{x} + 1\] \[\Large 3/(x + 1) = \frac{3}{x+1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1replace the `(x1)` with `x+1` and we go from this `x{x+[x(x1)]}` to this `x{x+[xx+1]}`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1IF it was xx, then yes it would be 0x = 0 but that first x isn't positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand that part so now what do i solve?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you agree that `x{x+[xx+1]}` becomes `x{x+[2x+1]}`

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the square brackets aren't doing anything so we can drop them `x{x+[2x+1]}` turns into `x{x2x+1}`

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what would x2x+1 simplify to?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we now have x{3x+1}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1maybe think of it as x1*(3x+1)
