Because I can't write squared, if x is squared, I will just write it like this: xsquared x/x +2 MINUS x/xsquared - 4 = x+3/x+2 I get an LCD for each fracton and then I subtract getting this: xsquared - 2x MINUS x/xsquared - 4 = (x+3)(x-2)/xsquared - 4 What do I do now? If you don't understand this just ask me to scan it
I suppose you mean [tex] \frac{x}{x+2} - \frac{x}{x^2-4} = \frac{x+3}{x+2} \Longrightarrow \frac{x^2 - 3x}{x^2 - 4} = \frac{(x+3)(x-2)}{x^2 - 4}[/tex] which is fine.
Or just learn LaTeX. I'm not quite sure what you mean. I surmise it is something like this: [tex] \frac{x}{x+2}-\frac{x}{x^2-4}=\frac{x+3}{x+2}[/tex] If it's not right, let me know. EDIT: Yarr, Data got there before I did...
Moo, that was right what you posted And that is where I got but the instructions are to solve Is that a solution to it?
Note that there is a small error in the thing you quoted, which I've corrected now. To solve, multiply [itex]x^2-4[/itex] through both sides, expand on the right, and see what you get.
I don't want to learn Latex right now because it will take too long but I'll learn it for the future. This is what I'm getting: xsquared - 2x - x = xsquared + x - 6 I subtract xsquared on each side to cancel them out getting: -2x - x = x - 6 I then subract x from each side getting -3x - x = -6 Then I subract the x -4x = -6 Did I mess up?
