Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0break the denominators off into factored squares, and cancel terms to simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{y(y  2)}{(y+9)(y2)} * \frac{(y+9)(y9)}{(y+9)(y+2)} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait a sec.....on the bottom right i put (y2) (y+2) for some reason. the rest i got right though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hold on let me try this to see if i get it right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Leaves \[\frac{y(y+9)}{(y+9)(y+2)} = \frac{y(y9)}{(y+9)(y+2)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[y^22y/y^2+7y18] factor you get [y(y2)/(y2)(y+9)]cancel you get y/(y+9) [y^281/y^211y+18] factor you get [(y+9)(y9)]/[(y2)(y9)] cancel you get (y+9)/(y2) now you can time; [y/(y+9)]*[(y+9)/(y2)] [y^2+9y)]*[(y^2+7y14)] from here can you do your own?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would you get rid of y2??? cuz thats the only way im getting the y(y+9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[y/(y+9)]*[(y+9)/(y2)] sorry time not divi [y/(y+9)]*[(y+9)*(y2)]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{y^22y}{y^2+7y18} \times \frac{y^281}{y^211y+18}\] \[ = \frac{y(y2)}{(y+9)(y2)} \times \frac{(y+9)(y9)}{(y9)(y2)}\] \[ = \frac{y}{(y+9)} \times \frac{(y+9)}{(y2)}\] \[ = \frac{y(y+9)}{(y+9)(y2)} \] \[= \frac{y}{y2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[y^2+9y)]*[(y^2+7y14)]not this [y^2+9y)]*[(y^2+7y18)] this correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The best strategy to use with these is to leave them factored as long as possible so you can quickly see what cancels.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes still time (y/y2)*(y+9)(y2)*[y^281/y^211y+18]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from here are you OK to do your own? [y^2+9y)]*[(y^2+7y18)]
