[(2/x)-1]/(x^2 -4)

2. Subtract and simplify:
[12/(x^2 -4)] - [(3-x)/(x^2 + 2x)]

3. Perform the indicated operations and simplify:
[(x/y)-(y/x)]^-1

4. Divide and simplify:
[(a^2 b)/(a-b)]/[(a+b)/(a^2-b^2)]

5. Perform the indicated operations and simplify
[(x/x-3)-(2x/x^2-2X-3)]/[(2/x+1)-(1/x)


Solutions:
