Simplify 1 x + 6 y 2 5 x − 3 y .

To determine

To Find:

The simplest form of the given complex fraction:

1x+6y25x3y

Explanation

Concept:

Fraction in a fraction is called complex fraction. Fraction of this kind can be solved to the reduced form in different approaches. One of the methods is to find the LCD and multiplied it to the numerator and denominator of the complex fraction.

Calculation:

Here, the given expression is 1x+6y25x3y.

LCD of the given expression is xy2.

So,

1x+6y25x3y=xy2xy2(1x+6y25x3y)=y2×1+
