# How do you solve rational equations #(6x + 4 )/(x+4)=(2x+2)/(x-1)#?

##### 1 Answer

Put it on a common denominator.

#### Explanation:

The LCD (Least Common Denominator) would be (x + 4)(x - 1)

We can now eliminate the denominators, because both fractions are now equivalent.

Since this is a quadratic equation, we must put everything to one side of the equation, so that the other side is 0.

As you can see, this cannot be factored. I will solve by completing the square, but you could also use the quadratic formula.
