Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

First, rewrite the expression as:

#(x^2 + 1x + 18)/(c + 9)#

Next, factor the numerator:

#((c + 9)(c + 2))/(c + 9)#

Now, cancel the common terms in the numerator and denominator:

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)((c + 9))))(c + 2))/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(c + 9))) ->#

#c + 2# : where #c + 9 != 0# or #c != -9#
