Homework Help: Express as a single term: 1/2x+1 - x/x-1

  1. Aug 28, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    express as a single term: 1/2x+1 - x/x-1

    2. Relevant equations

    it says to bring to a common denominator

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think I should take out an x-1 but I forget where to go from there. I will be posting a lot of questions this is a review for my test tomorrow that i forgot about.

    multiply the first term by (x-1)/(x-1) and the second by (2x+1/2x+1)
