Notice that the denominator consists of
(v6), (v+6), and (v^236)=(v+6)(v6)
Therefore the common denominator is
(v²36)=(v+6)(v6)
The first fraction becomes:
(v5)(v+6)

(v²36)
The second fraction becomes:
(v+1)(v6)

(v²36)
And the third one stays at:
(v18)

(v²36)
Since we have a common denominator, we can expand the numberators and add to get:
7(v6)

(v+6)(v6)
which after cancelling gives:
7/(v+6).
