If t +2 is the answer, you have typed the question wrong. It should be

(t^2 − t − 6)*(t − 3)^-1

You omitted the ^ for the exponents. The t-3 can be cancelled out after factoring (t^2 − t − 6).

Which of the following ia equivalent to the expression (t^2-t-6)(t-3)^-1?

a. t^3-9t+18

b. (t-2)(t+3)

c. (t+2)(t-3)

d. (t-2)

e. (t+2)

The correct answer is e, however, I cannot figure out how to work the problem out to get that answer. Can you show me how to work this out correctly?
