Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0note (ab) = (ba) , and (b^2  a^2) = (b+a)(ba) Multiply through by whatever you need to to get it all over this fraction and see what cancels. I can;t be bothered with the leg work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll give you a clue, 1/(ab) = 1/(ba) so the first two become 3/(ba) If you want it all over b^2a^2 you need to multiply this by (b+a) and the other fraction over (a+b) by (ba)
