Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, you have a term in the lower fraction: y^2. Multiply that whole complex fraction by y^2/y^2 and you end up multiplying y^2 by every single individual term. After that, cancel like terms and simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let 1= y^2/y^2. then u will have: 1−x^2/y^2 = (y^2x^2)/y^2 do the same thing with the top part. then u multiply y^2 to both nominator and denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01+x/y/(1x^2/y^2) becomes \[(1+x/y)/(1+x/y)(1x/y)\] Simplifying further 1/(1x/y) completing the denominator by combining 1x/y becomes (yx)/y The final results will then become y/(yx)
