Could you please check my answer to this problem:
Simplify the expression
Original problem:
(3x^2+10x8)/(3x^217x+10) x
(2x^2 + 9x 5)/(x^2 + 3x4)
The answer I got was:
(3x +4)(x2)/ (3x2)(x5)
x (2x1) ( x +5)/ (x +4) (x1)
so basically the problem could not be simplified more:
Is this right
Thank you

disagree about first factors
(3x2)(x+4)(2x1)(x+5)

(3x2)(x5)(x+4)(x1)
note x+4 top and bottom

Thanks Reiny, but I'm still lost. I understand how you multipled by 10X on the right to get 17x, but you went too fast on the left, and I have no idea how you got 10x^220 from the starting left side. Can you show each step?
