 Question 203076: I have the problem: 1 1 __ - __ 4n 2 *OVER* n 1 __- ___ 6 24n and I need to simplify. I solved the problems for the numerator and denominator and got: -4n+2 144n _____ x _____ 6n 24n^2-6 .....using the reciprocal of the denominator to multiply by. from there, I got that 24n^2-6 factors to (-4n+2)(-6n-3) and so that can cross cancel with the -4n+2 in the first fraction. the 144n can cross cancel with the 6n. So, I got: 1 24 __ x ____ 1 -6n-3 From here, I can factor out a -3, which makes it: -8/2n+3, but that is not one of the options. The options are: -6/2n-1, -6/2n+1, or 6/2n+1. What did I do wrong?
