(i really need to know the steps on how to do this (please just don't give me the answer i already know it)

**drwls**, Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 5:15amRewrite as a product by inverting the denomimator

[(x^2+10x+21)/(x^2+11x+28)] * [(x^2+11x+28)/(x^2+3x)/]

Cancel out the (x^2+11x+28)] terms which appear in both numerator and denominator.

(x^2+10x+21)/(x^2+3x)

Factor numerator and denomimator. Note that (x+3) is a factor of both. Cancel it out.

[(x+7)(x+3)]/[x*(x+3)]

(x+7)/x
