[tex]\frac {x+2} {x-1} \frac \frac {4x+1} {x-1}[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would using the bowtie method work? Cross multiply and then subtract the two answers found from each other, and put that result over the multiplaction of the two denominators. ?

EDIT: I messed up the Latex thing. THe 4x-1 and the x-1 are supposed to be a fraction under the x+2/x-1
