    To carry on business

    To carry out business

    I am a learner as well so this is more just advice to get you going in the right direction

    1. To carry on business

    If you include more words you get:

    To carry on WITH THE business

    2. To carry out business

    To carry out THE business

    Example 2 is describing an action which is what the question was asking you

    Example 1 is really just keeping it going

    This is only my opinion but I hope it is some help

    Re: Help

    glitterstar101 is correct. I have a few words to add, though.

    "To carry on with the business" means that you were doing something, then you stopped, then you started again and you are still doing it.

    "To carry out the business" means you started doing something, then you worked until it was complete.
