I would turn the big fraction bar between the top fraction and the bottom fraction into a divide symbol and set them up horizontally.

then you flip the 2nd equation. and im lost from there
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then you'll want to flip the second fraction and multiply, because we don't traditionally divide fractions.
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK - at that point, you'll want to factor every thing that can be factored.

the 5 cancels out and the 15 turns into a 3

That's right - what else cancels?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the 3 turns into a1 and the 6 turns into a 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, we can't do that. Remember, things only factors (things being multiplied) can cancel. Sums (things being added) and differences (things being subtracted) can't cancel.

That's why we have to factor first - to turn things into factors so that they can cancel.

the (x-3) cancels?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's right! :)

At this point, we've got this, but there are a few more things that can cancel |dw:1332643898303:dw|

and I'm looking specifically at the x and y on the bottom of the first fraction with the x and y on the top of the second fraction.
anonymous
  • anonymous
you cancel out the exponent ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You can, but which ones?
anonymous
  • anonymous
y^2 and the x^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes! :) |dw:1332644149276:dw|

And you would probably want to leave it in factored form to let whoever is checking your answer know that it can't be simplified any further.

Does what we did make sense?
