I do not get either of the answers you supplied...
Hello, everybody. Currently, I'm learning how to simplify rational expressions. I have the gist of it all, but there's one particular problem that's stumped me. Here it is:
The answer which I've gotten is the following:
However, I checked the answer on Mathway.com and it says it's the following:
I'm not sure why I'm not getting the answer correct, as I feel I'm doing all the right steps, but surely someone here would know much better than I would. :] I appreciate any help very much.
Thank you very much for your post and your help. I realized just by looking at your step-by-step process that I screwed up in the very beginning of the equation. Instead of finding a least common denominator between the fractions on the numerator of the overall expression, I used the second fraction's numerator and multiplied it by the fraction on the left... just a silly goof. I appreciate your help. :]
May I please ask for the step-by-step of one more? O:] Thank you very much, I would greatly appreciate it... I apologize... I'm at the end of the chapter almost and they're getting progressively more difficult for me...
Once again, sorry for posting more than one.... this one's got me just as stumped as the last one though :[
