**Math check 3**

f(x) = 1/(x+7)+15/(x-8). Find all a for which f(a)=f(a+15). I understand this so far f(a)=f(a+15) 1/(7+a) + 15/(a-8) = 1/(a+22) + 15/(a+7) I have multiplied the LCD of (a-8)(a+7)(a+22)by both sides with no luck. This is a multiple choice question a.) -161/8 b.) 120/7 c.) 161/7...

**math check question**

Subtract and Simplify: 4a^2/(a-b)-(4b^2-8ab)/(b-a) I have the answer as 4(a+b)^2/(a-b) or should it be 4(a-b)^2/(a-b) Responses Math problem check - bobpursley, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 4:23pm just the numerator.. 4a^2-8ab + 4b^2, right? 4(a-b)^2 Now does that reduce with ...

**Math problem check**

What about 4a^2/(a-b)-(4b^2-8ab)/(b-a) I thought that you would multiple the second part of the equation by -1 -(4b^2-8ab)/(b-a) to get the common LCD of a-b So I thought the equation would be 4a^2/(a-b) + (4b^2 + 8ab)/(a-b) I have the answer as 4(a+b)^2/(a-b)

**Math problem check**

Okay I have the answer as 4(a-b) is that right

**Solve**

Okay I understand it now I have to make them have the same denominators so I multiply 1/C by the numerator and denominator by C2 so it would be C2/(C2*C) and the other part is 1/C2 times C which would be C/(C2*C) which would make the problem 1/C1= C2-C/(C2*C) what do I do next?

**Solve**

Yes, I am still having problems with this problem. I understand this part 1/C1 = 1/C - 1/C2 but I don't understand this part: (C2 - C)/(C*C2)

**Solve**

Solve 1/C=1/C1 + 1/C2 for C1 This multiple choice and the listed answers are: a.)C1= CC2/(C2-C) b.)C1= C-C2/C c.)C1= C+C2/CC2 d.)C1= C+C2/C2
