# Math Help - Multiplying and dividing rational expressions

1. ## Multiplying and dividing rational expressions

It should be simplifying rational expressions...i put the topic on here wrong...
Could someone please help check my work?...I had to do evens...I don't know if I am doing these correctly...I am stuck on number 14....

everything looks good.

for #14, note that:

$6x^2 + 5x - 6 = (3x - 2)(2x + 3)$

and

$3x^2 - 5x + 2 = (3x - 2)(x - 1)$

3. So number 14 =
(2x +3)/(x - 1)

yup

i guess you need to work on factoring quadratics where the leading coefficient is not 1

5. Thank you very much!
