<span>The first thing to do here is simplify both sides. X=4/9 is simplified, but you can simplify the other side by canceling out the (x-2) in the numerator and denominator.

</span><span>The expression should be (x + 4)(x - 2)/9(x - 2)= (x + 4)/9. After simplification by (x - 2) , the remainder is (x + 4)/9. When x = -4, both sides equal to zero When x = 0 , both sides equal to 4/9 </span> I hope my answer has come to your help. God bless and have a nice day ahead!
