Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you factor as much as you can to see what factors you might have in common in the numerator and denominator. then you cancel each factor you have in common to reduce the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you get this \[\frac{2(xy)6(x+y)}{3(x+y)(x+y)(xy)}\] then you get rid of all common factors
