# Algebra 2 URGENT

posted by .

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

• Algebra 2 URGENT -

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

= 0y+2/y^2-2

= 2/y^2-2

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?

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
