ok so I have the following problem:
4x+2
-------- (fraction line, i thought this would be easier)
12x^2+14x+4
the answer is 1/3x+2
I can get pretty close to this but i get stuck along the way
i end up with:
2(2x+1)
-------------
3x(2x+1)+2(2x+1)
I dont know what to do, if I cancel out the 2x+1's im still left with a 2 as the numerator, if i cancel out the 2(2x+1) I feel like im breaking a rule because its part of addition (3x+2)
thanks for any help
