(r^(2)-36)/((r+6)^(2))

The binomial can be factored using the difference of squares formula, because both terms are perfect squares. The difference of squares formula is a^(2)-b^(2)=(a-b)(a+b).

((r-6)(r+6))/((r+6)^(2))

Reduce the expression by canceling out the common factor of (r+6) from the numerator and denominator.

((r-6)<X>(r+6)<x>)/((r+6)^(<X>2<x>))

Reduce the expression by canceling out the common factor of (r+6) from the numerator and denominator.

(r-6)/(r+6)

(r^2 - 36) / (r + 6)^2.

(r + 6)(r - 6) / (r + 6)(r + 6). One (r + 6) in the numerator and denominator cancel each other out.

Answer: (r - 6) / (r + 6)

on the grounds that n^2-a million = (n+a million)(n-a million) and you will write (n+a million)^2 as (n+a million)(n+a million) you may rewrite your fraction as: (n+a million)(n-a million) ---------------- (n+a million)(n+a million) on the grounds that we multiply fraction for the time of it somewhat is written as: (n+a million)/(n+a million) X (n-a million)/(n+a million) on the grounds that (n+a million)/(n+a million) = a million you have: (n-a million) -------- X a million (n+a million) or (n-a million)/(n+a million) subsequently you have simplified by using removing aspects of a million.
