Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, you'll need to get same denominators: \[\frac{5}{x(xy)}  \frac{5}{y(yx)} = \frac{5(y)(yx)5(x)(xy)}{xy(xy)}=\frac{5y^25yx 5x^2 +5xy}{xy(xy)(yx)}\] \[= \frac{5(y^2x^2)}{xy(xy)(yx)}\] \[=\frac{5(yx)(y+x)}{xy(yx)(xy)} = \frac{5(y+x)}{xy(xy)} =\] Correct me if I'm wrong please ^_^
