1. ## Algebraic Fraction question...

I have this algebraic fraction question:

" Simplify:

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

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.

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

3. That's very helpful thank you.
