Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here's how I factored it out: \[2(x+2y)/(x+y)(xy) \times (x+y)/(x+2y)(x+2y)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then, I removed (x+y) from denominator and numerator, and then (x+2y) to simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x^2y^2) is equal to (x+y)(xy), not (xy)(x+2y)
