Hi, I'm beginning pre-calc this semester, and for practice over the summer, the teacher has given us a review packet with algebra 2 stuff. Well, I've forgotten most of the fraction stuff on it. Would you please help?
Here's the question:

1/X-2 + 3/X+3 = 4/X^2+X-6

PS School starts on Monday, so please answer quickly. Thanx!!

Molly,

Write the left side with a common denominator of (X - 2)(X + 3) = X^{2} + X - 6.

If you need further assistance write back.
