How do you simplify #(x^2+4x-32)/(x+8)# and what are the ecluded values fot he variables?
Let's begin by factorising the numerator using the "middle-term break":
We can now cancel the
Now, let's determine the excluded value of the variable
The denominator of a fraction can never equal to zero.
Let's set the denominator of the original fraction equal to zero and solve for
So the excluded value of
