You need a common denominator and then simplify the fraction as far as possible.

After the question I put the start of my working out I pit it all into the fraction is that correct

It is correct, though in the future I'd write the question first so it is clear to you (and the examiner) in case you make a mistake. You should never "do things in your head" or skip steps, however easy it may seem.

I think you mean replace the x's with x/(x-2) as you are applying f to itself. What you have done above is correct.

Yes if I replace the x's I get this I'm not sure what to do after this

Find a common denominator for the expression on the bottom and then simplify using the 'leave, change, flip' rule of fractions i.e. a/b = a x 1/b ('leave' a, 'change' the division sign to a multiplication sign and then take the reciprocal of b ('flip')).

Multiply your numerator and denominator by (x - 2)

Post what you get

Your numerator is okay but your denominator didn't have to be expanded. When you multiply top and bottom by (x-2), the x-2 on the denominator of x/(x-2) cancels. No need to expand.

so the denominator just becomes x-2?

We are trying to simplify ...

x/(x - 2) multiplied by (x - 2) is just x

Repeat and repost - make sure you quote so I know you've done this
