Question

Algebra 2 (Kill me now?) Is this right?

(x^2)-(x)-(x^2y/x+y)

I've gotta convert from a mixed expression to a fraction.

So is x^3+x^2y-x^2-xy-xy^2

.........-----------------------------…

...................x+y

right?

Answers

[x^2(x+y) - x(x+y) - x^2y]/(x+y)

=[x^3 + x^2y - x^2 -xy -x^2y]/(x+y)

= [x^3--x^2 -xy]/(x+y)
