# How do you simplify #x^2/( x+12) = (2/1)#?

Assuming you mean to solve the equation, the solutions are

#x_{1,2} = \frac{-b\pm\sqrt(b^2-4ac)}{2a}= (2pmsqrt(100))/2=(2pm10)/2=(1pm5)#

To simplify the equation x^2/(x+12) = 2/1, we can cross-multiply to eliminate the fractions. This gives us x^2 = 2(x+12). Expanding the right side, we have x^2 = 2x + 24. Rearranging the equation, we get x^2 - 2x - 24 = 0. Factoring the quadratic equation, we have (x-6)(x+4) = 0. Setting each factor equal to zero, we find x = 6 or x = -4. Therefore, the solutions to the equation are x = 6 and x = -4.
