factor the first denominator. Get a common denominator. Combine terms.

I will be happy to critique your work.

ok hers goes
4x/(x-6)(x-12) + 4/(x-6)= 4x + 4/(x-6)(x -12) or am I completely lost?

you factored correctly.
You have no idea what you are doing on getting the fractions combined.

Take 20 minutes going through this. It is important to learn this skill, or you will not be successuful in any further algebra.

4x + 4/x -12 is this correct or am I still off.
