#### Solutions

Chapter 1.4, Problem 52E
To determine

## To find: The equation of the Adding or substracting rational expression

Expert Solution

3x+4(x2)(x+2)

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The equation is

xx24+2x2

Concept used:

AC+BC=A+BC

Use the least common denominator (L.C.D)

The product of the distinct factors , using the highest power that appears in any of the factors

Calculation:

Adding or substracting rational expression is

AC+BC=A+BC................(1)

The equation is

xx24+2x2xx222+2x2x(x2)(x+2)+2x2x+2(x+2)(x2)(x+2)x+2x+4(x2)(x+2)3x+4(x2)(x+2)
