    okay its hard to explain but okay. x-y but the denominator of y is (x/y)+(y/x)

    i have to simplify it but i already got the common denominator of the (x/y)+(y/x)

    Sweet, and you said you found a common denominator, right? How did you do that?

    So, from here we can simplify using complex fractions. |dw:1439944876911:dw|

    Sweet. Any ideas on how to use the complex fraction rule from here?
