    Dividing algebraic fractions.

    Divide.

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

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

    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}
