it The expression could just flip flop our minds completely

out of our skulls were not careful here So slow

down few breasts and find our way through it So

term Common denominators sound like a good starting point And

if you look at the answer choices here their way

simpler So let's think about this All right So we're

starting with this mess right here and well then we're

going to smoosh the whole thing together simplify the numerator

and expand the denominator So that gets us quantity X

plus seven plus quantity x plus five over quantity Exposed

five times Explosive in all to the negative one And

well funny thing we have What now Looks like two

x plus twelve over X squared Plus twelve ax plus

thirty five Power Interesting What do you think You get

the negative one there That does not match It's wrong

It's not a so what the power of negative one

wants us to do remember is invert everything We invert

the fraction so it's actually going to look like this

X squared plus twelve expose thirty five over two X

plus twelve which is B which is the right answer
