Hi guys I just need to simplify this equation and I keep eliminating all x's so I don't know if that is possible. Let me know if i'm right or were I went wrong...my work is below
(2/x+2)(x/x2)+1
2(x2)(x)(x+2)+1(x+2)(x2)
2x4x^22x+x^22x+2x+4
4

first, I don't see any "=" so there's no equation
(x2)(x+2) = x^2  4
so, the final answer is 8, not 4
That is just the numerator. The equivalent fraction is thus
8/(x^24)
