The simplify

The problem comprises of 3 steps:

Step 1 of the solution:-

(3x^3+2x^2-5x-4)/ (-3x^3+7x^2+2x-8)

Step 2 of the solution:-

= (x + 1) ^2(3x - 4)/-(x + 1) (x - 2) (3x - 4)

Step 3 of the solution:-

= (x + 1)/-(x- 2)

So, our final answer is:-

= x+1/ (-x+2)

Now, we will look at another problem on simplification of rational expressions to make it clearer.

Step 1 of the solution:-

(5x^3+3x^2-32x+12)/ (-15x^2+36x-12)

Step 2 of the solution:-

=( x - 2 )( 5x - 2 )( x + 3 )/-3( x - 2 )( 5x - 2 )

Step 3 of the solution:-

= (x + 3)/-3

So, our final answer comes to (x + 3)/-3.
