Here is how problem is written. x^2-3x+2/x^2-8x+15 multiplied by x^2+x-12/8-2x-x^2 My biggest problem is figuring out how to multiply exponents to figure a solution of two sets to get my solutions.Answer by dabanfield(803)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(x^2-3x+2)/(x^2-8x+15) * (x^2+x-12)/(-x^2-2x+8) Factor all the numerators and denominators: [(x-1)*(x-2)]/[(x-3)*(x-5)] * [(x+4)*(x-3)]/[-(x-2)*(x+4)] = [(x-1)*(x-2)*(x+4)*(x-3)]/[(x-3)*(x-5)*(-1)*(x-2)*(x+4) Many of these factors cancel out leaving: (x-1)/[(-1)*(x-5)] = (x-1)/(5-x)
