1. ## Simplifying fractions.

Can you simplify these easy fractions:

$\displaystyle \frac{a}{4b^2}$

$\displaystyle \frac{b}{5c}$

$\displaystyle \frac{x}{x^2-25}$

2. They cannot be simplified further.

3. thanks, it's true that they can't be simplifed but what about other operation, opposite of simplifing.

The opposite of simplify is to complicate. Why would you want to complicate these expressions?

What are the original questions that led you to these expressions?

5. because it's says: Simplify or complicate these fractions...

so i have to do something with fractions...

it's very strange, so i ask you guys for some help.

Well then you can just be creative.

$\displaystyle \frac{a}{4b^2}=\frac{20ababababa}{80abababab^3}$

Heh.
