 Question 580207: For all r is not equal to plus or minus 2, (r squared - 5r + 6) over (r squared - 4 = ?Answer by jim_thompson5910(28536)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(r^2 - 5r + 6)/(r^2 - 4) ((r-3)(r-2))/(r^2 - 4) ((r-3)(r-2))/((r-2)(r+2)) (r-3)/(r+2) So (r^2 - 5r + 6)/(r^2 - 4) completely simplifies to (r-3)/(r+2) In other words, (r^2 - 5r + 6)/(r^2 - 4) = (r-3)/(r+2) for all values of r where r doesn't equal 2 or -2.
