Solve the equation by multiplying each side by the least common denominator.
2/h2 + 4/h+1 = 0
I know the answer is 5, but I do not know how to solve the problem.
Please explain further.

DrBob222,
I tried the problem as
[2/(h2)] + [4/(h+1] = 0 but I don't get 5 for an answer. If you will put parentheses to show the correct problem perhaps we can help.
