    no, its definatly
    (x + 1) * 3 / (x - 3)

    3x + 3 / x -3

    fo' sure

    3x + 3 / x -3 = 0

    solves to be x = -1.5

    3x + 3 = x -3
    4x = -6
    x- -1.5


    right?

    If any of you do A Level Maths then the factor theorem will help you solve the first part then multiply your answer by the 3 so u will get 3*ANS / x-3 then the factor theorem will work again for the second answer? Don't hold me to it...

    Yea like we've said it is definitey 3x + 3 / x -3 , but you got the second part wrong....lol..you use the factor theorem like the dude above said and u should get a quotient of 3 with a remainder of 12. Are you sure you do A level maths? ..you cant just take it to the other side..thats like..criminal..lol..just kidding..

    and this isn't a-level maths so i didn't think the factor theorum would have to be used anyway?

    I used the factor theorem at GCSE... I think it's the easiest way to do it. You definitely can't multiply the right hand side by the denominator - think about it, Blagdahlia- what do you get if you multiply anything by 0?!

    ACTUALLY....I corrected it..see I'm smart enough to correct mistakes..unlike you..you need to get more practise..besides..i got Level 8 in my year 9 SATs..you obviously won't.
