12-25.

1. $\frac { 2 x } { 3 x ^ { 2 } + 16 x + 5 } + \frac { 10 } { 3 x ^ { 2 } + 16 x + 5 }$

These fractions have the same denominator.

After adding the fractions, factor to see if you can find any Giant Ones to remove.

$\frac{2}{3x+1}$

1. $\frac{x^2-x-12}{3x^2-11x-4}\cdot\frac{3x^2-20x-7}{x^2-9}$

Factor each polynomial. Look for Giant Ones to remove.

$\frac{x-7}{x-3}$

1. $\frac{2x^2+8x-10}{2x^2+15x+25}\div\frac{4x^2+20x-24}{2x^2+x-10}$

Take the reciprocal of the divisor and factor each polynomial. Remove Giant Ones and multiply what's left.

1. $\frac{16x-12}{4x^2+5x-6}-\frac{3}{x+2}$

This is the denominator.

$4x^2+5x-6=\left(x+2\right)\left(4x-3\right)$
