Okay so I tried solving it on my own, but I think I did the last step wrong. My answer was not correct. Can anyone show me a step by step answer on how to simplify this expression:
(3x + 1) / (x + 2) - (-5) / (x + 7)
You will want to make the denominators equal, so you multiply the first fraction with and the second with
Note that you need to do - (-5x-10) which comes down to +5x+10
Some people prefer to multiply out the denominator, but I personally don't.
Does this make it clear?
