Simplify each expression and state any non-permissible values. ( 3 marks - show your work)

x/(x^2-3x-4)-4/(x+1)

Please help me!

asked by Alex
  1. x^2-3x-4 = (x-4)(x+1)
    So, you have

    x/[(x-4)(x+1)] - 4/(x+1)
    (x - 4(x-4))/[(x-4)(x+1)]
    (16-3x)/[(x-4)(x+1)]

    As usual, you cannot divide by zero, so any values of x that make a denominator zero are excluded.

    Now show us what you got on the others you posted. As it says, show your work.
