Here is the fraction that I don't know how to combine and simplify, please help me out! Thanks! =](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\frac{5}{a} + \frac{4}{2a-6} + \frac {-4a}{a^{2}-9}[/tex]

I found the common denominator I think: (x+3)(x-3) .. but how do you make {a} in that form?
