Is it an equation?! Please clear your meaning...
(x-3)(x+8) is the same denominator which is factored!
2x -7/x^2 +5 -24
The book gives the answer of -8 and 3. I understand (x-3)(x+8).
But when I did the problem I wrote it as (x-8)(x+3). Therefore the answer is wrong?
Is it the same thing? If not then why?
Thank you very much in advance.
