Simplify:

1/4a+2 + 4/6a+3

I got 14/6(2a+1)

but I don't think it is right

1/(4a+2) = 1/2(2a+1)

4/(6a+3) = 4/3(2a+1)

Now you have

1/2(2a+1) + 4/3(2a+1)

Change it all to be over 6(2a+1):

3/6(2a+1) + 8/6(2a+1) = 1/6(2a+1)

How did yo get 14?

forget the (2a+1) for now

1/2 + 4/3 = 3/6 + 8/6 = 11/6
