1. Hi,
I am completing a pack before I begin a level maths and was wondering if someone could help with this question? I have an answer but it doesn't look right lol:

Simplify fully:
3x- x^2 / x^2 -9 divided by 2x +6 / (x+3) ^2

-(x/2) is the simplest form?

Yayyy I got that !!! Thanks ! I did it by switching the second fraction then cancelling several things etc but is there a different way or is that method ?
