\frac{3x}{x}-\frac{x}{x+1}=<br />
    multiplying by (x+1) for the left fraction and (x) for the right fraction gives

     <br />
\frac{3x(x+1)-x*(x)}{x(x+1)}=<br />
    simplifying the numerator

    \frac{3x^2+3x-x^2}{x(x+1)}=

    more simplifying

    \frac{2x^2+3x}{x(x+1)}=

    factoring x out of the numerator and canceling it with the x in the denominator leaves

     <br />
\frac{2x+3}{x+1}<br />
