Can not figure out problem. We need to simplify this fraction.
Hi Erin;
I think this is...
[5x/(x-1)^{2}]+[35/(x-1)]
First, let's take the second part...
[35/(x-1)]
Let's multiply this by...
(x-1)/(x-1)
[35/(x-1)][(x-1)/(x-1)]
[35(x-1)]/(x-1)^{2}
{5x/(x-1)^{2}}+{[35(x-1)]/(x-1)^{2}}
Both expressions now have the same denominators...
[5x+35(x-1)]/(x-1)^{2}
Let's work with the numerator...
5x+35(x-1)
Let's distribute...
5x+35x-35
40x-35
The result of everything is...
(40x-35)/(x-1)^{2}
