    algebraic fraction to simplyfy

    would anyone be able to help with a question.

    I have attached my notes to a question , I have to simplify what is in the red box, and underneath are a few note on how I think the question needs to be done, but I can`t get to the right answer in the book.

    can anyone show me the steps to get the answer.

    Many thanks

    Dave

    Re: algebraic fraction to simplyfy

    5\left(\frac{x^2y+xy^2}{y^2+\frac{2}{5}xy} \right)=\frac{5x^2y+5xy^2}{5y^2+2xy}

    Divide both numerator and denominator by y, factor 5x in the numerator and you're done

    Do you know what LaTeX is? LaTeX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia if you embrace some simple LaTeX code between [tex] and [ /tex] (and remove the blank space in the second tex) the forum will display the equations as in my previous post
