    very complicated algebra

    Could someone help me with the following algebraic fraction:

    <br /> <br />
\frac {(a-b)(a^2+b^2)-a+b}{(a^3b^3)-(a^2-ab+b^2)+1}<br />

    I think you have a typo somewhere because the denominator does not factor. The numerator factors to be
    (a-b)(a^2+b^2-1)
    So if there is no typo, then the rational function does not simplify any.
