y^{2}+5y+6 over y^{2 }-5y+6

Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

Nkeiruka:

Factorize numerator and denominator.

(y^{2} + 5y + 6) / (y^{2} - 5y + 6) = [((y + 2) (y + 3)] / [( y - 2 )(y - 3)].

Remember, never to divide by zero!

SO, **exclude y = 2 or y =3 **(inclusive or, that means either y = 2, y = 3 OR both) because those values make the denominator zero.

No further simplification seems possible.
