We completed 8 out of the ten and I believe they are correct. However these two I would like a second opinion on that shows work. NUMBER 1. Divide and state the qoutient in Simplest form 9y^2 / y^2+2y+1 DIVIDE BY 36y/y^2-1 2. Multiply and state the product in simplest form 27y / y^2 - 1 multiplied by y^2 + y / 36y^2 Thanks from manus

You are an alleged mathematics tutor.

You must have grouping symbols around the denominators and one of the numerators. If you are really a math tutor,
then I would have expected to see them there without any trouble.

9y^2/(y^2 + 2y + 1) divided by 36y/(y^2 - 1)

27y/(y^2 - 1) multiplied by (y^2 + y)/(36y^2)

Again, note the above quote.
