I had to simplify (2+x-x(sq))/(6+7x+x(sq)) I got it to (2+x)/(6+7x), where do I go from here?
I believe (2+x)/(6+7x) should be your final answer, because you can't pull anything out of those numbers on both the top or bottom to be able to cancel them out.
( 2 + x - x^2) / ( 6 + 7x + x^2) factor
[(2 - x)(1 + x)] / [(6 + x)(1 + x)] =
(2 - x) / ( 6 + x)
