Hi

I am having trouble with simplifying this:

1/x+2 - 1/x+4

I get the following:

2/x^2+6x+8

It just does not seem right can anyone see where I might be going wrong ?

Thanks

Rather that reading about LaTex, I suggest using this resource:

Online LaTeX Equation Editor

in which you can instantly see what your output will be, and then copy/paste into MHF.
