User: Simplify the rational expression. 3x - 6/ x-2

Weegy: (X-2)/( x^2 +3x-10) = (x-2)/[(x-2)(x+5)] = 1/(x+5). Ans = 1/(x+5). This is provided that the sign between x^2 and 3x is indeed '+'.

4y + 5 = – 31

4y = -31 - 5

4y = -36

y = -36/4

y = -9

x-2/x^2+3x-10
= (x-2)/(x-2)(x+5)
= 1/(x+5) where x can not be -5 or 2.

x^2 - 36/ 6 - x
= (x + 6)(x - 6)/(6 - x)
= -x - 6 where x can not be 6.
