Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
I get lost in the algebra every time.
[tex]2(q + \frac{pq}{a})(\frac{-rq}{a^2}) + 2(p + a)[/tex]
[tex]=2(\frac{-pq^2}{a^2} + \frac{-p^2q^2}{a^3}) + 2(p + a)[/tex]
Get a common denominator for the two terms in the first pair of parentheses, and then combine those two terms.
Can you carry on from there?
