1. which is what i sed about an hour ago...
2. (Original post by Adam Yauch)
x^2 - 1/x - 1 * 3/x - 3 simplify?
no, its definatly
(x + 1) * 3 / (x - 3)

cya
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?
4. 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..
6. a) jndikum, you didn't get it right, everyone else did then you got it wrong (about an hour later)
b) i'm in year 9 and i don't know what the factor theorum is *cries*
7. 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.
10. what is the factor theorum?
