x^2-81/x + x-9/x+5 Divide and simplify
plz show steps.

• algebra -

please use brackets to establish the correct order of operation.
the way you have it typed, only the -81 gets divided by x, and only the -9 gets divided by x

I have a feeling you meant ...

(x^2 - 81)/x + (x-9)/(x+5)

You also said "divide", was the + sign supposed to be ÷ ??
