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?
