I have a feeling your question is
x/(x-2) - (x+2)/x
Factoring doesn't make much sense, more than likely it says "simplify", am I right?
for (3 + √5)(3 - √5)
You should recognize the 'difference of squares' patter, or you could just expand it
= 9 - 5 = 4
4 is the only answer
Yes, you are right. It does say simplify.
back to x/(x-2) - (x+2)/x then
common denominator is x(x-2)
so x/(x-2) - (x+2)/x
= [x^2 - (x+2)(x-2)] / [x(x-2)]
= (x^2 - x^2 + 4)/[x(x-2)]
I changed my answer to
x/(x-2) - (x+2)/x to 4/x(x-2)
Is that right?
got it, thanks!
