Hi, so can someone help me to see if this logic is correct. What I thought is that for

x-y/x the x’es cancel out so we are left with -y

x-y/y the y cancels out but it becomes x-1 because -y/y = -1

Then I thought that x would be bigger because even for x=1 it will be 0 while -1y will always be negative and thus <0. Is my logic wrong because of potential negative values for y it becomes positive?
