**Answers:**

I think you meant to put parentheses around (x+h) and not the whole fraction.

(1/(x+h) +1/x) / x

First start with the top by getting a common denominator.

1/(x+h) + 1/x

= x/[x(x+h)] + (x+h)/[x(x+h)]

= (x +x+h) / [x(x+h)]

= (2x+h) / [x(x+h)]

The last step is to divide by x.

((2x+h) / [x(x+h)]) / x

= ((2x+h) / [x(x+h)]) (1/x)

= (2x+h) / [x^2 (x+h)]

Remove the parentheses around 1/x+h, they are useless.

(1/x+h+1/x)/x

1/x + 1/x = 2/x, so...

(2/x+h)/x

Dividing by x is the same as multiplying by 1/x. So multiply each term in the numerator by 1/x, to get rid of that ugly double fraction. Your final answer is...

2/x^2 + h/x

( 2x+h ) / x = 2 + (h / x)

get rid of the brachets first and keep doing it until there are no brachets that makes it easier

Add (1/x+h)= Result#1

Now add (Result#1) +(1/x)= Result#2

Finally, (Result#2/x)

Hint: common denominators!

1/x=h
