I really don't think the question is possible to factor but I really don't know. Anyway, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks!Answer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!the numerator (top) is not factorable, but the denominator (bottom) is (2x^2 - 5x - 6) / [(x - 6)(x + 1)] non-permissible values are quantities that result in undefined results (like division by zero) 6 and -1 both result in a zero denominator ___ this is a no-no (see above)
