I don't want you to take this the wrong way, But... You need to get this stuff and get it quick because if you are in calc 1, this type of stuff is going to hurt your performance. This type of simplification is done in algebra 1. You have your work cut out for you. And don't get me wrong, I'll help you. But, just know that you are going to have to step it up.
i totally get what you mean, it has been 3 years since i last took calculus and have to take one more course to fulfill my requirements so it's just taking a while to get things refreshed. very sorry to bother you, but it just takes a while for things like this to get back in memory as my major is no where related to calculus.
i am still flustered on this problem.
(I got 2ah^2-2ah-2h^2) (a^2+ah)
answer must be A/H
