## anonymous 3 years ago What is the simplified form of the quantity y squared plus y minus 6 over the quantity y squared plus 2 y minus 3 ?

1. anikhalder

$\frac{ y ^{2}+y-6 }{ y ^{2}+2y-3}$First factorize the numerator separately and then the denominator(middle term factorization)..@DeadShot ..pls tell me if you got it

2. anonymous

The numerator is (x+3)(x-2)

3. anonymous

the denominator is (x+3)(x-1)

4. anonymous

@anikhalder It's $\frac{ (y+3)(y-2) }{ (y+3)(y-1) }$so the answer is $\frac{ (y-2) }{ (y-1) }$ right?

5. anikhalder

Well done 47...:) You are absolutely right

Alright, Thanks for the help!
