Can someone please help me with these two.

What is the quotient (6-x)/(x^2+2x-3)÷(x^2-4x-12)/(x^2+4x+3) in simplified form? State any restrictions on the variable.

Simplify the complex fraction
((x)/(x+2))/((1)/(x)+(1)/(x+2))

  • Math -

    #1. The first fraction is

    -(x-6)/(x-1)(x+3)

    The other is

    (x-6)(x+2)/(x+1)(x+3)

    Dividing, you have

    -(x-6)(x+1)(x+3) / (x-1)(x+3)(x-6)(x+2)
    = -(x+1)/(x-1)(x+2)

    x≠-3,-2,-1,1


    #2.
    x^2/(2(x+1))
