Simplify
[(-16x^2+29x+6)-(16t^2+29t+6)]/x-t
I noticed I can factor into (-x+2)(16x+3) etc..
But, they are asking me to simplify. As far as I know, all this means is that I can simplify the top and get, [-16x^2+29x+16t^2-29t]/x-t. Do you think this is what they want? Or am I missing something?
Hey, great start. You're almost there. Once you're at this stage:
Rewrite:
Partially factor:
Rewrite, changing the signs of the and then second bracket (changing the to is the same as multiplying through by , changing the signs of the second bracket multiplies through by again, so the end result is unchanged):
Rewrite again, just for clarity:
And then we can cancel:
(remembering that )
