Hi,
I'm having a bit of trouble with the work I was assigned by my teacher. The problem goes:
1/(3-x) + (2x-5)/(x²-7x+12)
The common denominator is supposed to be (x-3)(x-4) and the answer is supposed to be x-1/cd. The problem is that two of the common denominator terms have the same variables but different signs, namely (3-x) and (x-3). I'm supposed to simplify out one of those factors and then switch the operator between the fractions so that this becomes a subtraction problem. The thing is I don't know which one of the factors to remove, which factor to multiply the numerator by, and how I should proceed in general. Can anyone help me?
Thanks!
