# How do you simplify and find the excluded values of 8/(x+2)?

$\text{already in simplest form}$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{8}{x + 2}$ is in simplest form. There are no $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{common factors}}$ on the numerator/denominator.

The excluded value is x = 2 as this would result in the denominator being zero which would make the function undefined.
