X(x+1)/1x-6*5x/x+5

this is far as get I can not seem where else to go

**Reiny**, Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 8:14amwrite it this way ....

(x^2+4x-5)/(5x-5) * 5x/(x+5)

= (x+5)(x-1)/(5(x-1)) * 5x(x+5)

= x , x ≠ 1,-5

x^2+4x-5/5x-5*5x/x+5

I have tried to work it. but canot get it.

**Ashley**, Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 11:36amthe problem is x^2 plus 4x-minus 5 over5x-5 time 5x over x+5 without parenthesis.

**Reiny**, Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 11:48amx^2 plus 4x-minus 5 over5x-5 time 5x over x+5

has to be written with parenthesis in this format to have the proper order of operation

That is why I retyped it as

(x^2+4x-5)/(5x-5) * 5x/(x+5)

(x^2+4x-5)/(5x-5) * 5x/(x+5) is equivalent to

x^2 plus 4x-minus 5 over5x-5 time 5x over x+5

**Henry**, Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 5:09pmProblem: (X^2+4X-5)/(5X-5)*5X/(X+5)

Solution:(X-1)*(X+5)/5(X-1)*5X/(X+5)=(X+5)/25X/(X+5)=(X+5)*(X+5)/25X=(X+5)^2/25X.

The parenthesis are neccessary for clarity. Notice that the numerator and a portion of the denominator are factored.
