    Equation manipulation help

    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
