## THIS USER ASKED ๐

**Describe the error made in subtracting the two rational expressions shown: 1/x-2-1/x+1=x+1/x-2(x+1)-x-2/(x+1)= -1/x-2(x+1)**

## THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER ๐

The correct answer is:

The numerator of the answer should be 3.

Explanation:

The common denominator was found accurately and the expressions were changed accurately to reflect that denominator.

The mistake happens when the subtraction is done. There would be a subtraction of numbers

(x + 1) – (x-2)

The distribution of the signal would give us an appearance

x + 1-x – 2 = x + 1-x + 2

The xans would cancel, leaving 1 + 2 = 3.
