You can
put this solution on YOUR website!
1. noting the topic is simplifying...i would assume that the numerator will factorise to (x-1)(something) and then you can cancel the (x-i) terms and possibly factorise the quadratic further.
2. same again.
3. same again.
Practise long division of polynomials, to get your factors out.
enjoy :-)
