You must make all the fractions equivalent by putting them on an equivalent denominator.

#### Explanation:

The LCD (Least Common Denominator) is (x + 2)(x - 2).

We can now eliminate the denominators.

Since x= -2 makes some of the denominators equal to 0, there is no solution to the equation.

Hooefully this helps!
