Hi

3(x+3)/x+9 is OK
What do you mean by "i'm thinking it may just be 2" ?

3. Hi dempc,

The only thing I'm seeing is

$\frac{4x+3}{x+9}-\frac{x-6}{x+9}$

Is that it? It looks like you might have a picture attached, but I don't see it.

If so, then subtract the numerators and simplify. The denominators are the same.

$\frac{4x+3}{x+9}-\frac{x-6}{x+9}=\frac{4x+3-(x-6)}{x+9}=\frac{4x+3-x+6}{x+9}=\frac{3x+9}{x+9}=\frac{3(x+3)}{x+9}$

4. thanks again..... i was trying to simplify it past that point and it just can't be... i had it right .. but got the answer too easy so i figured i was doing it wrong!

Thanks again guys!!
