1. ## expression

Find the perimieter of the given figure. the given figure is a rectangle shwoing two sides
lenght x/2x-5
width 8/2x-5
P=2(w)+2(L) correct?
so how do I multiply this i got
x+8/(2x-5)^(2) 0r -19 + 8/x I'm getting amny different answewers to this
or-2+8/x

2. Hello, lizard4!

Find the perimieter of the given figure.
The given figure is a rectangle showing two sides:
Length: . $\frac{x}{2x-5}$
Width: . $\frac{8}{2x-5}$

$P\:=\:2L + 2W$, correct? . Right!

so how do I multiply this?
i got: x+8/(2x-5)^(2) . . . or -19 + 8/x . . . or-2+8/x
What in the world are you doing ??

$P \;\;=\;\;2L + 2W \;=\;2\left(\frac{x}{2x-5}\right) + 2\left(\frac{8}{2x-5}\right)$

. . $= \;\;\frac{2x}{2x-5} + \frac{16}{2x-5} \;\;=\;\;\frac{2x+16}{2x-5}$
