Reduce each rational expression

x^3-4xy^2/3x^3-2x^2y-8xy^2

  • Math -

    factor out x in numerator and denominator to cancel,, it then becomes:
    (x^2-4y^2)/(3x^2-2xy-8y^2)
    factor both numerator and denominator:
    [(x-2y)(x+2y)]/[(x-2y)(3x+4y)]
    cancel (x-2y), therefore:
    (x+2y)/(3x+4y)

    so there,, :)
