I really need help on this one

  1. Jun 29, 2006 #1
    Hey!

    Can anybody help me with this????

    I need to simply the following expression:

    (x^4 + x^2y^2 + y^4)/(x^2 - x^2y^2 + y^2)

    I'd be so thankful ..

    are sure the expression in the denominator is [tex]x^2 - x^2y^2 + y^2[/tex] and not [tex]x^2 - xy + y^2[/tex]

    Did you simply try dividing?
