Math Help - Unlike Fractions with + in the Denominator

1. Unlike Fractions with + in the Denominator

How do you change it so that they are the same?

For example, this problem:
Simplify.
$\dfrac{2}{x+h}$ = $\dfrac{2}{x}$

2. Unlike Fractions with + in the Denominator

Multiply the left side by (X+h) / (X+2) and the right side by X / X. Then both sides will have the same denominator, X * (X+h), and you can just add the numerators together.

Whoops, sorry.
I meant:
$\dfrac{2}{x+h}$ - $\dfrac{2}{x}$

or would you still do it the same way?
