Arlandria, you have to use parentheses for this kind of problem, or use the bar notation to avoid the double reading!!
(2x - 3) / (x + 1) = 2 - (3x - 1) / (x + 1)
or
2x – 3 3x – 1
———— = 2 – ————
x + 1 x + 1

Just one question: how did you figure out it is (2x-3)/(x+1), not 2x-3/(x+1), for example??

A+ question, Kiril. He-he, because I did tons of virtual problems with students and know formats of the problems.

... plus logic! Student used spaces! :)
