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 ÷ ??
