notice that the numerator is a difference of two squares,, recall:

a^2 - b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)

thus the numerator can be factored into:

(6x+7y)(6x-7y)/(6x+7y)

then cancel the common factor and you get 6x - 7y

hope this helps.

Oh my gosh, thank you so much. I even understand exactly how you go the answer. I've been doing the tutoring at my school for almost 2 days with the same tutor and they cannot explain it on an easy to understand level. I really really appreciate your help!!!!!
