Question #24341

I am required to simplify a^2b^2 /(a-c)(b-c) + b^2 c^2/(b-a)(c-a) + c^2a^2/(c-b)(a-b). Help please?

I don't think I can be of much help but to start, do what is in parenthesis first! PEMDAS (parenthesis, exponents, multiply/divide; left to right, add/subtract; left to right). So,

ab + ac + bc

It would help if you use brackets everywhere.
