Strategic Advice: When working with rational expressions, look for a common factor that can be divided out of the numerator and the denominator. If you find one, you can cancel it. It will save time if you look for the greatest common factor.

Getting to the Answer: Factor out the GCF of both the numerator and the denominator. Then cancel what you can. In this expression, the GCF is 5u2v.

This matches (C).
