I have the following term in an equation

(-Ax + By)/(Au + Bv)

where x,y,u and v are variables and A and B are constant coefficients.

is there any way to rewrite this so that A and B are in front of the term?

One suggestion would be to factor an A out and cancel it.

Rewrite B/A = c

to obtain

(-x + cy)/(u + cv)

but apart from this I can't see a way to move the A and B in front
