yes : it would be (y+5)(y-5)(y+2)/y(y+5) y + 5 would be cut and u would get (y-5)(y+2)/y

y^2-25=(y-5)(y+5) (y-5)(y+5)/y Divided by (y+5)/(y+2) is the same as (y-5)(y+5)/y times by (y+2)/(y+5)

So cancel out the (y+5) and you get \[(y-5)(y+2) \over y\]

Surgut you can't see the divide line \[(y-5)(y+2) / y\]

It's in the same sense as dividing by 2 is the same as timesing by a half (which is1/2)
