if you have a particular example to share with us we could point you in the right direction ?

3. If you have two things that you need to prove are equal for all values of x, just start with one of them and try to express it as the other by using what you know. However, be cautious of the range and domain (for example when dealing with reciprocal functions like 1/x).

Can you give me an example of a proof you're struggling with?
