To write 4/(x+2)+3/(x-2) as a single fraction in its simplest form, we need to find a common denominator for the two fractions. The common denominator is (x+2)(x-2).

Multiplying the first fraction by (x-2)/(x-2) and the second fraction by (x+2)/(x+2), we get:

(4(x-2))/((x+2)(x-2)) + (3(x+2))/((x+2)(x-2))

Simplifying the numerators, we have:

(4x-8)/((x+2)(x-2)) + (3x+6)/((x+2)(x-2))

Combining the fractions, we get:

(4x-8+3x+6)/((x+2)(x-2))

Simplifying the numerator, we have:

(7x-2)/((x+2)(x-2))

Therefore, 4/(x+2)+3/(x-2) can be written as (7x-2)/((x+2)(x-2)) in its simplest form.
