Solve the equation by multiplying each side by the least common denominator.

2/h-2 + 4/h+1 = 0

I know the answer is 5, but I do not know how to solve the problem.

Please explain further.

  1. I tried the problem as
    [2/(h-2)] + [4/(h+1] = 0 but I don't get 5 for an answer. If you will put parentheses to show the correct problem perhaps we can help.
