I just don't get algebraic fractions. I can solve them, but I don't get how it works. My teacher isn't very good at explaining. Could someone help me through this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for instance if I have \[\frac{ 2xy }{ m } \times \frac{ 2m }{ y }\] I know I can cancel the Y but I don't know why I can. I can cancel the M, but the Y has been multiplied by X so it isn't Y anymore and removing one of them leaves you with XY  Y and that's more complicated. You can't just remove all the Ys because the first is X Ys and the second is one Y.
