    Trouble Simplifying Equation/Fraction- Please help!



    I need to simplify in the form of A/B.

    I got the LCD and for the denominator I get a(a+b) however, I am very flustered on the numerator! Please help!

    \frac{1}{h} \left[\frac{2}{a+h} - \frac{2}{a}\right]

    \frac{1}{h} \left[\frac{2a}{a(a+h)} - \frac{2(a+h)}{a(a+h)}\right]

    finish up ...

    Awesome...I was forgetting the double negative and writing 2 instead of -2!

    Thank you so much!
