# Algebraic question

Can you make these 2 fractions into 1?

$2\sqrt{9-2x} - \dfrac{2x}{\sqrt{9-2x}}$

I thought you could make them into $\dfrac{-2x+18}{\sqrt{9-2x}}$

 rather $18-4x-2x$ in the nominator – Berci Oct 13 '12 at 11:35 You're right, thank you. – Tittyboy Oct 13 '12 at 11:38 Else it's maximally ok – Berci Oct 13 '12 at 11:39

 I assume that we should make the statement that $x$ is not equal 9/2. – Emmad Kareem Oct 13 '12 at 12:38 That is implicit as soon as the initial expression is given. In fact, you need $x < \frac{9}{2}$. – Michael Albanese Oct 13 '12 at 12:44 OK, thanks, may be the OP should take notice. – Emmad Kareem Oct 13 '12 at 12:45
