2013-05-18 14:27:05 +0200 | asked a question | Very basic simplification question I know what the answer is, however I'm trying to work through the process of this basic question. The equation is below: (3 + x)/x^2 To simplify can't you simplify it to by simplifying the exponents: 3/x However if you were to plug a constant into the original variable such as 2, you would get a different result than if you simplified it. - x = 2 | (3 + x)/x^2 = 5/4
- x = 2 | 3/2
It's been a while since I went through algebra, so I'm sure there's an easy answer, I'm just wanting to know where I'm not thinking it through properly. Thanks! |
