(x/(3x+6))-((x+1)/(3x-6))=(1/((x^2)-4))

Thank you.

**Steve**, Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 5:35pmsomething wrong with my answer two hours ago? Here it is again.

x/(3x+6) - (x+1)/(3x-6) = 1/(x^2-4)

factor out the 1/3 on the left side, and factor the right side

1/3 (x/(x+2) - (x+1)/(x-2)) = 1/((x+2)(x-2))

now put LS over a common denominator

1/3 (x(x-2) - (x+1)(x+2))/((x-2)(x+2)) = 1/((x+2)(x-2))

multiply through by 3(x-2)(x+2)

x(x-2) - (x+1)(x+2) = 3

x^2 - 2x - x^2 - 3x - 2 = 3

-5x - 2 = 3

-5x = 5

x = 1

**Bart**, Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 5:56pmSteve, thank you for showing me again. Yes, I couldn't quite get it last time. I understood factoring out the 1/3 on the left side. I understood factoring the denominator on the right side. After that I have trouble. Could you please show it to me again with more steps in place?
