Hi, I'd like to know if you can tell me if I have gotten the following simplification correct. Thanks! (2/1 + 3/4) ÷ (2/1 - 3/8) = 5/5 ÷ 1/9 = 5/5 ÷ 9/1 = 45/5 = 9/1

By the way, is there a math editor tool that I can use? Thanks for your reply; greatly appreciated.
Just want to know where you got the 8/4 at the beginning - How did you get the 8?

In fact, the simplest way to do that problem is to multiply both numerator and denominator by the least common denominator of the fractions: 8.
