correct, i'll change it

2. Ok this is the other problem i dont get(btw i love this forum now)

simplify and state restrictions
x^2+2x-63/7-x

do you mean $\displaystyle \frac {x^2 + 2x - 63}{7 - x}$? if so, you should type (x^2 + 2x - 63)/(7 - x)

yeah thats what i meant, BTW how do you type the way you type? i cant get those fractions and stuff properly like you...

$\displaystyle \frac {x^2 + 2x - 63}{7 - x} = \frac {(x + 9)(x - 7)}{-(x - 7)} = -(x + 9)$

the restriction is $\displaystyle x \ne 7$ since we have to consider the domain of the first function as well. in the original question, x = 7 makes the denominator zero

i use LaTex. see here

6. Oh OK so you factor the top and then just cancel them out i see.

(5m^2+6m-8)/(5m^2-16m-16) * (20m^2+16m)/(4-m^2)

$\displaystyle \frac {5m^2+6m-8}{5m^2-16m-16} \cdot \frac {20m^2+16m}{4-m^2}$

OMG I DID IT!

7. $\displaystyle \frac {j^2+7j+12}{j^2+6j+9} \div \frac {j^2-16}{j^2+7j+12}$

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+3)} \div \frac {(j-4)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+4)}$

8. I hope you're not letting me do your homework for you... where's that suspicious smiley?

same story here.

$\displaystyle \frac {5m^2 + 6m - 8}{5m^2 - 16m - 16} \cdot \frac {20m^2 + 16m}{4 - m^2} = \frac {(5m - 4) (m + 2)}{(m - 4) (5m + 4)} \cdot \frac {4m (5m + 4)}{(2 - m)(2 + m)}$

$\displaystyle = \frac {4m(5m - 4)}{(m - 4)(2 - m)}$

what do you think the restrictions are? remember, consider the original function as well

OMG I DID IT!
haha, yes you did

not so hard was it?

now that you can type with LaTex, try this on your own, and i will correct you if anything

10. Thats what i was planning on doing but i got an email saying you posted so im reading that ATM thanks!

11. m doesnt = 4 or -2 <---is that right?

and im stuck here, do i cancel or recipricate and muiltyply?

$\displaystyle \frac {j^2+7j+12}{j^2+6j+9} \div \frac {j^2-16}{j^2+7j+12}$

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+3)} \div \frac {(j-4)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+4)}$

what about the (2 - x) and the (5m + 4) in the denominators of the original fractions

and im stuck here, do i cancel or recipricate and muiltyply?

$\displaystyle \frac {j^2+7j+12}{j^2+6j+9} \div \frac {j^2-16}{j^2+7j+12}$

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+3)} \div \frac {(j-4)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+4)}$
multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction and see if anything cancels. if not, just multiply

13. so m doesnt = 2 but how do i do the (5m-4)?

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+3)} \cdot \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j-4)(j+4)}$

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j-3)}{(j+3)(j-4)}$

did i cancel the right stuff?

14. Originally Posted by Ari

set 5m + 4 = 0, solve for m

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j+3)(j+3)} \cdot \frac {(j+3)(j+4)}{(j-4)(j+4)}$

$\displaystyle \frac {(j+3)(j-3)}{(j+3)(j-4)}$

did i cancel the right stuff?
no

15. m doesnt = -4/5

then what am i supposed to cancel?
