Answer:

#2x +y #

Explanation:

Note that

#(4x^2-y^2)/(2x-y)= ((cancel(2x-y))(2x+y))/(cancel(2x-y)) = 2x+y #

Since #a^2- b^2 = (a+b) (a-b)#

Answer:

(2x +y)

Explanation:

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

( 4#x^2# - #y^2#) can be written as #( 2x +y) (2x -y)#

#(2x +y ) ( 2x-y) // (2x-y) #

#2x +y#
