Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Why did we do all that? We factor everything, then we cancel the common (y+3) terms \[\Large \frac{y^2+7y+12}{y^23y18}\] \[\Large \frac{(y+3)(y+4)}{y^23y18}\] \[\Large \frac{(y+3)(y+4)}{(y6)(y+3)}\] \[\Large \frac{\color{red}{(y+3)}(y+4)}{(y6)\color{red}{(y+3)}}\] \[\Large \frac{\color{red}{\cancel{(y+3)}}(y+4)}{(y6)\color{red}{\cancel{(y+3)}}}\] \[\Large \frac{y+4}{y6}\]  So \(\Large \frac{y^2+7y+12}{y^23y18}\) simplifies to \(\Large \frac{y+4}{y6}\)
