Q:
# Simplify the expression

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:(3 x)/(5 x + 2)Step-by-step explanation:Simplify the following:
(3 x^2)/(5 x^2 + 2 x)
Hint: | Factor common terms out of 5 x^2 + 2 x.
Factor x out of 5 x^2 + 2 x:
(3 x^2)/(x (5 x + 2))
Hint: | For all exponents, a^n a^m = a^(n + m). Apply this to (3 x^2)/(x (5 x + 2)).
Combine powers. (3 x^2)/(x (5 x + 2)) = (3 x^(2 - 1))/(5 x + 2):
(3 x^(2 - 1))/(5 x + 2)
Hint: | Evaluate 2 - 1.
2 - 1 = 1:
Answer: Β (3 x)/(5 x + 2)
