How do you solve #x/(x+2) - 2/(x-2) = (x^2+4)/(x^2-4)#?
You must make all the fractions equivalent by putting them on an equivalent denominator.
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!
