I think you are missing your second topping. but, the denominators are the same so you can just compare the numerators. Making a picture sometimes helps.

This is an order of operation question. My Dear Aunt Sally. Multiplication and Division are done first Addition and Subtraction are done second. Otherwise work from left to right. 3 + 7 - 7 + 3 - 3 x 3 3 + 7 - 7 + 3 - 9 Now just combine from left to right.

The numerator, you have to factor by grouping. Group: (3a^2 + 6ab) + (-a -2b) Take out the common factor in each group and then you should see two identical factors. Write that factor down once and your second factor is what is left over (actually, what you factored out from ...
