Divide.

$\frac {-15xy - 10x}{5x}$

$\frac {2x^2y - 6xy^2 + 12xy}{2xy}$

Thanks.

Thanks.
Is this one or two problems?

$\frac {-15xy - 10x}{5x} = -3y-2$

$\frac {2x^2y - 6xy^2 + 12xy}{2xy} = x - 3y + 6$

If you divide the top equation by the bottom one, you will get this:

$\frac{-3y-2}{x - 3y + 6}$

3. It was two different questions, thanks a ton for your help.
