Howdy I could use a little help solving this problem. (2*(x+11)^(1/2)-x*(x+11)^(-1/2))/(x+11)

Factor out in the numerator, then cancel it out in the denominator.

Could you explain how those two factor out the (x+11) on the bottom? If I understand you correctly, the top two should negate out to 1?
wait... does it simplify to -9/11 ?
Hello, Nyture! Simplify: . Multiply by . . . . . . . . .
Ugh, I came up with that answer about 5 times but I guess I never plugged it in. Good to know what the actual right answer is so I can stop reworking. Thanks a lot of the help!
