n^2-4 can be written as =(n-2)*(n+2) so we'll have (n-2)*(n+2) ------------= n-2 (n+2)

I need to simplify the whole equation. So I would have to multipy that to n/3n-6

Is that the whole answer? I'm looking for just one answer that is simplified. I don't know the name of this kind of math method though...

3n -6 = 3(n-2) \[\frac{n(n-2)}{3(n-2)} = \frac{n}{3}\]

For example, y^2/12x is in Simplest Form

the math method is just factoring and reducing by cancelling

break it down, look at each term and try to factor it then cancel identical terms on top and bottom
