40a / (b-1)*(b-4) / 5a^2 / 2(b-1) 40 cancels with 5 leaving 8 a^2 cancels with a leaving a in denominator b-1 cancels with b-1 so left with 8/b-4 / a/2 invert and multiply 16/ab--4a

now take b^2-5b+4 and simplify it like u do spliting the middle term so....b^2-5b+4 b(b-4)-1(b-4)
anonymous
  • anonymous
(b-1) (b-4)
anonymous
  • anonymous
now {40a/(b-1)(b-4)}/{5a^2/2b-2}
anonymous
  • anonymous
take the main denominater in reciprocal form then cancel 40a with 5a^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
now 16b-16/(b-1)(b-4) = 16(b-1)/(b-1)(b-4)
anonymous
  • anonymous
cancel b-1 u'll get opt4
anonymous
  • anonymous
(i.e) = 16/b-4
