get common denominators, and bring the right sid eof the division below. $\huge \frac{\frac{1}{x}+\frac{2}{y}}{\frac{2}{x}+\frac{1}{y}}=\frac{\frac{y+2x}{xy}}{\frac{2y+x}{xy}}$ now anything common between the numerators cancal, and anythign common between the denominators cancel

3. Mathmuse

Alternately, and maybe more appealing is the invert and multiply $\huge =\frac{y+2x}{xy} \times \frac{xy}{2y+x}$

Thanks so much!
