1. Simplify: . Show work.

1 - 2/x = (x - 2)/x

x - 4/x = (x2 - 4) /x
=(x - 2)(x + 2)/x

(1 - 2/x) / (x - 4/x) = ((x - 2)/x)/( (x - 2)(x + 2)/x)
= 1/(x + 2)

2. Simplify: Show work. Give the exact answer (including a radical).

√50 = √25 * 2
= 5 √2

√18 = √9 * 2
= 3 √2

Then

5 √2 + 3 √2 - 7 √2 = √2

3. (a) Is the graph of ...
