# How do you simplify #(x^2-2x-8)/(x^2+3x-4)#?

It is already simplified.

You factor the trimonial in the numerator, and the denominator.

As you can see, there are no factors that are the same. So it is already as simple as it can be.

To simplify the expression (x^2-2x-8)/(x^2+3x-4), you can factor both the numerator and the denominator. The numerator can be factored as (x-4)(x+2), and the denominator can be factored as (x+4)(x-1). Then, you can cancel out the common factors, resulting in (x-4)/(x+4).
