Simplify:
1/y^2-y-2+1/y^2+y

  • Algebra 2 URGENT - ,

    1. Gather your ys together and your 1/y^2 terms together:

    1/y^2-y-2+1/y^2+y

    = 0y+2/y^2-2

    = 2/y^2-2

  • Algebra 2 URGENT - ,

    this is not the answer that i am getting i am getting 2y-2/y(y+1)(y-2)Can you show me what is wrong or all of the work?

  • Algebra 2 URGENT - ,

    That is all the work.

    There's a -y and a +y; they cancel out.

    There are two 1/y^2 terms; they add.

    There's a -2.

    That's it.

    Unless there are brackets you've omitted in the question?

  • Algebra 2 URGENT - ,

    Hm. If the question was

    1/(y^2-y-2)+1/(y^2+y)

    then I would get the same answer you give, but that is very different from 1/y^2-y-2+1/y^2+y
