Let's **Factorise** the

The Denominator is

We can use **Splitting the Middle Term** technique to factorise this.

It is in the form

To split the middle term, we need to think of two numbers

After Trial and Error, we get

So we can write the denominator as

The Denominator can be written as

The expression we have been given is

After the denominator was factorised, the Expression can now be written as :
