I need to divide this but I am a little confused. I hope this makes sense I tried to make sure I have the parenthesis in all the right spots
[(x^249y^2)/(6x^2+42y)] / (x^2  7xy)
[(x^249y^2)/(6x^2+42y)]*[1/(x^2  7xy)]
{[(x+7y)(x7y)]/6(x^2+7y)]}*[1/ x(x7y)]
{[(x7y)]/6(x^2+7y)]}*[1 / x]
(x+7y) / [6x(x^2+7y)]

According to your original line you are correct, but...
are you sure that the second bracket wasn't (6x^2+42xy) ?
Then I would have worked out better and the answer would have been 1/(6x^2) 
nope I am positive it is the way I have it written. This problem has caused me more grief because I thought there should have been a "x" in it also. Thanks for looking at it for me.
