distribute the 4 in the numerator an ah in the denominator...

you get

4a - 4a - 4h / [a^2h + ah^2) ]

then i cancelled all the a's and cancelled 4 -4

and got -4h / ah + h^2

now on the computer i entered -4 for the numerator and it came out to be correct....

but my denominator is wrong, why? what did i do wrong? - September 21st 2011, 05:20 PMWilmerRe: Please help me simplify
