Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

In order to convert the given expression into a rational expression, we have to combine the two terms using common denominators.

Let's begin like this:

#6+ 5/(t+1)#

#(6(t+1))/(t+1) + 5/(t+1)#

Now that we have common denominators of #t+1# in both terms of the expression, we can add them together.

#(6(t+1))/(t+1) + 5/(t+1)#

#(6t+6)/(t+1) + 5/(t+1)#

#(6t+11)/(t+1)#

I hope that helps!
