Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could someone please help me with the following question? I would really appreciate it as I am really stuck.

Express (x + 4)/(2x^2 + 3x + 1) - 2/(2x + 1) as a single fraction in its simplest form.

I got that [(x + 4)(2x + 1) - 2(2x^2 + 3x + 1)]/(2x^2 + 3x + 1)(2x + 1)

= (-2x^2 + 3x + 2)/(x^2 + 3x + 1)(2x + 1) but I am not sure where to go from here.

Thank you.

Cathy
