# What is the simplified form of 1 over x minus 2 over x squared minus x?

**Solution:**

The problem statement in words can be stated mathematically. 1 over x minus 2 over x squared minus x can be re-written as 1/x - 2/x^{2} - x

Let us find the simplified form. The simplified form can be obtained by taking the LCM of denominators.

The LCM is x^{2}

1/x - 2/x^{2} - x

=x/x^{2} - 2/x^{2} - x/x^{2}

= (x - 2 - x^{2})/x^{2}

Thus, the simplified format of 1 over x minus 2 over x squared minus x is (x - 2 - x^{2})/x^{2}

## What is the simplified form of 1 over x minus 2 over x squared minus x ?

**Summary:**

The simplified form of 1 over x minus 2 over x squared minus x is (x - 2 - x^{2})/x^{2}
