I'm trying to simplify this polynomial

((s+1)/(2+s))/((s+1)+((s+1)/(s+2))(s+1))

It's more readable if you view it here:

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=((s+1)/(2+s))/((s+1)+((s+1)/(s+2))(s+1))

It simplifies to 1/(2s+3)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure what steps are necessary to reduce it down to that.
