First one

 

Original ratio of saved to total money per paycheck  =   20 / 200

 

Final ratio of saved to total money per paycheck   =  (x + 20) / (x + 200)

 

Final amount saved per paycheck   =   x + 20

Second one

 

Note that what we really have is just this

 

4x                       6x

_____   ÷        ______

5 + x                  x + 2

 

So.....just like "normal" fractions....we just invert the second and multiply

 

4x                       x + 2

_____    x         ______     =

5 + x                    6x

 

 

4x               x + 2

__      x      _____

6x               x + 5

 

 

4               x + 2

_      x       ____

6               x + 5

 

 

2            x + 2

__     x   ____

3            x + 5

 

2x + 4

_____

3x + 15

Last one

 

Factor  x^2 + 4x + 3   =  (x + 3) ( x + 1)

Factor   x^2+ x  =   x ( x + 1)

Factor  2x^2 -3x + 1  =   (2x - 1) (x - 1)

 

So......just like the last one.....we really have

 

 

( x + 3) ( x + 1)              (2x - 1) ( x - 1)

____________      x     ______________

   2x   -  1                        x  ( x + 1)

 

"Cancel"   the  ( x + 1)   and  2x - 1  factors    and we have

 

 

( x + 3) ( x - 1)

___________

         x
