in this question, they give you values for X Y and Z X is equal 12 12. Why is equal to 10 and see is equal to 24 e wants you to write the ratio X t X plus y two X plus e in simplest form Notice. I put a line through my Z here. Okay, I often do that. Just says what does it look like? A two? Okay, All right, So now let's just plug in. Access 12 12 x plus y x plus y is 12 plus 10 12 plus 10. And why Posey is 10 plus 24. So it's gonna be 12. 2 22 to 20. Hope. Sorry about that. My mistake. That would be 34. 34. Oh, right, 34.
