yeah. To emulate the denominator, we multiply both sides by x minus four times X plus four plus two. And this becomes 12 times two times tax plus four was 18 times two times It's miners full. He calls nine times x. plus fel and ex miners. And if they multiply this out it gives us 24 hats plus 96 Plus 36 years. My nurse a hungry and 44. Because my ax squared Miners Way Hamburg and 45 the Jsa moves the right hand side two left hand side. And then they can buy the similar terms which gives my X squared miners 60 miners 96 Echo zero. Then we divide both sides by three Which gives threats Square -20 yards miners 72 is called zero. Yeah. We can factor this quadratic queer into two parts Rachel three X minor. Sorry, plus four times as minus eight. You call zero. Uh huh. We get to solutions which are X. Y. Those miners for third In Eric's to Echoes eight. If you don't know how to factor this quadratic equation, you can use a quadratic formula which will give you the same solutions.
