this should probably be fairly easy, but my answer ended up being slightly different than what the answer should be. I'm hoping someone can be so kind as to point out my mistake.
I started by factoring the denominators to
then I multiplied the stuff out to
I then factored out the (x-2) in the numerator to
then cancelled the (x-2) out, leaving
next I distributed the numerator to
then finally simplified to
unfortunately, the answer is apparently
close, but close doesn't count in math. Can someone please point out my mistake?
