    Once more I beg for kindness.

    So, I have a workbook for my Calculus class, and its review of high school math with no calculator, its been fairly smooth sailing thanks to a question answered on here yesterday. Rather, it was pointed out that I was being a moron.
    Now I have come back asking for help again.
    I have the following question, and I don't need an answer, I'm just asking for somebody to show me what the heck I am supposed to do, please.
    The question. (i'm going to try the math text)
    ((x/y)+(y/x))/((x^2/y^2)-(y^s/x^2))

    (x/y)+(y/x)
    ________________
    (x^2)/(y^2)-(y^2/x^2)
    That looks more like the question.

    start by multiplying every term by x^2y^2 to clear the fractions in the numerator and denominator ... then think about some factoring.
