Q. Simplify:$\displaystyle \frac {m}{m^2 + mn} + \frac {n}{n^2 + mn}$

this is the furthest i've gotten, im not sure if its even right so far

$\displaystyle \frac {2mn}{m + n( m + n)}$

Thanks

$\displaystyle \frac{m}{m^2+mn}+\frac{n}{n^2+mn}$

=$\displaystyle \frac{1}{m+n}+\frac{1}{n+m}$

=$\displaystyle \frac{2}{m+n}$ - May 26th 2009, 09:47 PMfindmehere.genius
sure I too got to same result:

$\displaystyle 2/(m+n)$ - May 27th 2009, 02:13 PMscoobydoo4
