I'm not sure how to multiply (x^2+6x=9) by (x^2-1)

I would assume that you would have to distribute everything as normal, including the 9 ( the answer being x^4-x^2+6x^3-6x=9x^2-9)but I am really not sure because I havent done something like this before.

Can someone please show me how to solve these for me? 5/(y-2)=y+2 (x/3)-(2/3)=(1/y-5) (y+2)/7=1(y-5) (x^2)/(x-4)-7/(x-4)=0 x^2/(x+3)-5/(x+3)=0 I assume that your second equation has y as a typo. I will use that as an example.

The problem to solve is: (x+20)(x-12)(x+4)>0 but I can't figure out how to do this right so I left off the >0 and tried to solve the equation. x+20 evaluates to x+20 x-12 evaluates to x-12 Multiplying x+20 by x-12 is a classic

could you tell me three equivalent fractions for each: 2/3 8/16 4/10 3/4 Just multiply or divide by a common number. For example, 2/3 = 4/6 = 6/9 = 8/12 = 10/15 8/16 = 4/8 = 1/2 etc. Just multiply each fraction by 3 different
