whats is the simplified form of 4z^2+16+15/2z^2-z-16

6 years agofactor out what you can on both the top and bottom

6 years agoWhich in this case is not much,....

6 years agotry to factore the bottom trinomial

6 years agofrom the 16 you have missed a z ,yes ?

6 years agoHmm that might make more sense :P

6 years agoin numerator

6 years agoOh I missed that. yes there is a z after 16

6 years agook than do you know how you solve a quadratic equation ?

6 years agothe formula of discriminant ?

6 years agonot nessecary...

6 years agouse decomposition factoring on top

6 years agoso than do it without

6 years agoOkay thank you.:) I'm just not very good at factoring so I wasn't sure how.

6 years agoDo you have an idea about the factoring on top?

6 years agoill give you a hand

6 years agodo u still need help?

6 years agoYes, I thought I got it but I didn't... so yes please

6 years agook jsut give a few minutes

6 years ago4z^2+16+15/2z^2-z-16 just as Bitmaximus had stated earlier factor both expressions then it will be simplified

6 years agofactor 4z^2 + 16 z + 15 (2z+3)(2z +5) then factor the bottom trinomial 2z^2 - z - 16

6 years agodo u see what i am doing?

6 years agoYeah I'm following so far

6 years agoso try and factor 2z^2 - z - 16

6 years agowouldn't my answer be 2z+3 over z-3

6 years agou mean for the final answer

6 years agoyes my simplified answer

6 years agook let me check first

6 years agothe simpllified form is (2z+3) ( 2z+5) / 2z^2-z-16

6 years agoeven though it is not the same as ur answer, but the problem is that u can not factor the bottom trinomial

6 years agoare u still with me?

6 years agoYeah I tried to factor the bottom it doesn't make that much sense

6 years agothat is why i think that ^^ is the simplified form

6 years agoWell your answer makes sense.. Thank you:)

6 years agour welcome
