Re: algebra reducing fractions to lowest terms(y + 5)(y  3) / (2y  6)(y  3) Last edited by bronxsystem (20130709 08:55:04) #3 20130709 08:50:22
Re: algebra reducing fractions to lowest termsHi; You will be able to finish now. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130709 08:55:24

Re: algebra reducing fractions to lowest termsIf you get stuck factoring numerator and denominator then use the quadratic formula on them. In mathematics, you don't understand things.
