For Problems 9-50, simplify each rational expression.(Objective 2) 3 x 3 + 12 x 9 x 2 + 18 x

To determine

To Find:

The expression by simplifying the given rational expression.

Explanation

Approach:

A rational expression is defined as the quotient obtained by a division of two polynomials in the form of p(x)q(x) where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials in such a way that the variable x does not assume values such that q(x)=0.

For values of x where q(x) and k(x) are both nonzero expressions, then by the fundamental principle of fractions, for all polynomials p(x), the following holds.

p(x)k(x)q(x)k(x)=p(x)q(x).

Calculation:

The given rational expression is 3x3+12x9x2+18x.

Factorise the numerator 3x3+12x.

3x3+12x=3x(x2+4)

Factorise the denominator 9x2+18x
