In this problem: 5/12b + 15/36b^2

First I made a common denominator: 15b/36b^2 + 15/36b^2

Then I simplified the first fraction:

5/12b + 15/36b^2

Can I simplify the second fraction by 3b? If I can, what am I supposed to get?

  • Math -

    Can I simplify the second fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by 3b?
