I was hoping someone could help me out with this. Also, I was wondering if the steps could be numbered so I can refer back to a certain step just in case I get confused.. Ok.. here goes...

It says "Simplify"

3/(X^2+13x-14) + 3/(X^2+17x+42)

_____________________________

9/(x^2+17x+42) + 9/(x^2+x-6)

Thanks for any help. These rational functions are driving me mad..
