Which of the following is equivalent to the expression (t2 − t − 6)(t − 3)−1 ?
a. t3 − 9t +18
b. (t − 2)(t + 3)
c. (t + 2)(t − 3)
d. (t − 2)
e. (t + 2)this is the answer how is the problem worked out?

If t +2 is the answer, you have typed the question wrong. It should be

(t^2 − t − 6)*(t − 3)^-1

You omitted the ^ for the exponents. The t-3 can be cancelled out after factoring (t^2 − t − 6).

Which of the following ia equivalent to the expression (t^2-t-6)(t-3)^-1?
a. t^3-9t+18
b. (t-2)(t+3)
c. (t+2)(t-3)
d. (t-2)
e. (t+2)

The correct answer is e, however, I cannot figure out how to work the problem out to get that answer. Can you show me how to work this out correctly?
