# X^2 - 8x - 9 over x^2 - 1

Factor both equations, you'll get (x-9)(x+1) for the first one and (x+1)(x-1) for the second one.

new equation:  (x-9)(x+1) over (x+1)(x-1). You can cancel out both (x+1)s because  when divided by each other you're left with the number one. The answer is (x-9) over (x-10

Product of a whole number and unit fraction for 3x3/4

Because all real numbers can be expressed as fractions, whole numbers can be too, with the denominator as 1.

e.g. 3 = 3/1

And then it works like normal multiplication

3/1 x 3/4 = (3 x 3) / (1 x 4)
= 9/4
= 2 and 1/4

Also for future reference, normally * (the asterix, shift + 8) is used to show multiplication on a computer, because "x" is normally used in algebra to mean something else.
I believe its 2 and 1/4
