\[\large \frac{1+\frac{2}{y}}{1-\frac{4}{y^2}}\] \[\large \frac{y^2*1+y^2*\frac{2}{y}}{y^2*1-y^2*\frac{4}{y^2}}\] \[\large \frac{y^2+2y}{y^2-4}\] \[\large \frac{y(y+2)}{(y+2)(y-2)}\] \[\large \frac{y\cancel{(y+2)}}{\cancel{(y+2)}(y-2)}\] \[\large \frac{y}{y-2}\] So \[\large \frac{1+\frac{2}{y}}{1-\frac{4}{y^2}}=\frac{y}{y-2}\]
