(x+5)(x+1) - (x+5)(x-2)

(x+5)(x-2) (x+5)(x+1)

So I factor them than I multiply times the LCD which (x+5)(x+1)(x-2)

I got this.

(x+5)(x-2)(x-2) - (x+5)(x+1)(x+1)

-----------------------------------

(x+5)(x+1)(x+1) - (x+5)(x-2)(x-2)

Than I subtracted like terms (x+5) which left me with this.

(x-2)(x-2)(x+1)(x+1)

---------------------

(x+1)(x+1)(x-2)(x-2)

I cancel like terms which is everything so I got this

1

--- = 1

1

What do you guys think does that look right?
