Here is an example:

9x^2 - 25y^2
------------
3x - 5y

Factor the numerator, its a difference of perfect squares.

9x^2 - 25y^2 = (3x - 5y) (3x + 5y)

(3x - 5y)(3x + 5y)

(3x)(3x) = 9x^2

(3x)(5y) = 15xy

(-5y)(3x)= -15xy

(-5y)(5y)= -25y^2

9x^2 + 15xy - 15xy -25y^2

9x^2 -25y^2 = (3x - 5y)(3x + 5y)
---------------------------------

9x^2 - 25y (3x - 5y)(3x +5y)
---------- = ---------------- = 3x +5y
3x - 5y 3x - 5y
