Simplify fully 8(x+1)(2x-3)/2(2x-3)

Posted Sun 5th June, 2011 @ 19:14 by Iram

i think it should be 4(x+1) ? you can cancel out the (2x-3) on top and bottom leaving 8(x+1)/2 then cancel out the 2 leaving 4(x+1) :)

(8x+8) x (2x-3)/2 (4x-6)
i think thats the first part... dont know the rest!

it expands to 8x+16x-24/4x-6, which goes to x=1.... i think...

You're so right! I thought the first 23-3 was a plus!, you def cancel it

8x+8/2 = simplified.

Cancel out the like terms = 2x+3 then expand all and tada. Simple.

yeah I got 4x + 4 :)

Oh yes 8x+8/2 dividing the top of by two to get rid of the 2 at the bottom gives 4x+4. Great work :). Check out my videos for maths help if you want!
