x/(x-2)- (x+1)/x= 8/(x^2-2x)

notice that x^2 - 2x factors to x(x-2), which are found as the denominators of the first two fractions.

Multiply each term by x(x-2), the rest is easy.

    x/x-2 - x+1/x = 8/x^2-2x notice the last denominator factors to x(x-2) and those factors are found in the other two fractions so x(x-2) is the lowest common denominator. now multiply each term by that x(x-2) to get (x)(x)

    let f(m)=m^3 + 3m^2 + 3m + 1 notice f(-1) = 0, so m+1 is a factor. Using division, the answer is m^2 + 2m + 1 which factors once more to (m+1)(m+1) so you have (m+1)^3 = 0 and then m = -1 Are you familiar with Pascal's triangle?

    I am trying to factor, but I can't seem to get this one. The question is: -15d*2*-2d+8. It is actually -15d squared but I didn't know how to right that without it being confusing. Anyways I changed it so now it says -1(15d-2d+8).
