    Algebraic Fraction question...

    I have this algebraic fraction question:

    " Simplify:

    b(c^2 - bc)
    __________
    ab(ac - ab) "


    The answer is:
    c
    _
    a^2

    How do you get to this answer?

    Note: This isn't a h/w question, but I need to know it.

    Thanks.

    \frac{b(c^2 - bc)}{ab(ac - ab)} = \frac{bc^2-b^2c}{a^2bc-a^2b^2} = \frac{c(bc-b^2)}{a^2(bc-b^2)}= \frac{c}{a^2}
