    This could mean a lot of things. Is it \frac{3}{4} + \frac{2}{3(s+2t)}+s or more like \frac{3}{\frac{4+2}{3(s+2t)+s}}?

    Use parentheses please.

    3 + 2* (s + 2t) + s
    4 3

    * The 3 is under 2 so its 2/3 but i dont know how to get the 3 under the 2 to stay.

      = \frac{3}<br />
{4} + \frac{2}<br />
{3}\left( {s + 2t} \right) + s \hfill \\

       = \frac{3}<br />
{4} + \frac{2}<br />
{3}s + \frac{4}<br />
{3}t + \frac{3}<br />
{3}s \hfill \\

    <br />
   = \frac{3}<br />
{4} + \left( {\frac{2}<br />
{3}s + \frac{3}<br />
{3}s} \right) + \frac{4}<br />
{3}t \hfill \\

       = \frac{3}<br />
{4} + \frac{5}<br />
{3}s + \frac{4}<br />
{3}t \hfill \\
