<p>Hi, I am doing an Algebra 2 practice packet before I go into Algebra 2 and I am stumped on a question. Can you please explain to me how to a question like this? Thanks</p>


<p>(x+3) (6)
_____ + _____________
(x+5) ( x^2+3x-10)</p>

<p>what do you want to do exactly ???? Simplify solve ???</p>

<p>the second fraction's denominator can be factored into (x+5)(x-2) then multiply (x-2) to the other fraction's numerator and denominator, then add the numerators. The (sorta) tricky part is remembering that the polynomial can be factored. Everything else is simple 4th grade fraction addition.</p>
