can someone help me solve this?

**Steve**, Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 6:44pmIf you examine the numerator, you will see that it is

y^3-y^2 -5y-5

or

y^2(y-1) - 5(y+1)

Something tells me there's a typo, and it should have read

y^3+y^2 -5y-5

which is

y^2(y+1) - 5(y+1)

so you have

(y^2-5)(y+1)/(y+1)

= y^2-5

If it is correct as written, then visit
