2/(5w+10 ) 3/(2w4)
please show me how to work this problem.
I assume this is some sort of combine the fractions, as there is nothing equal to the sentence above.
factor out 1/((5w+10)(2w4))
1/((5w+10)(2w4)) * ( 2*(2w4)  3(5w+10) )
do the multiplication in the paren..
1/((5w+10)(2w4)) * (4w16  15w30)
1/((5w+10)(2w4)) (11w  46)
you could factor a 10 out of the denominator, making
1/(10( w+2)( w2)) (11w  46)
add or subtract as indicated. express your result in simplest form.
2 over 5x+ 10 subtract 3 over 2w  4 will this help since I didn't make myself clear?
