  2. We cannot cancel out the numerator and denominator when the fractions are not multiplied by each other.

  3. The person directly multiple all the fractions together and the person did not use the foil or prove method. For the second step in their question,the person simplified (5-5)before multiplying first.

  4. When you add fractions, you cannot simplify it by dividing the numerator of one of them and the denominator of other(for example) by the same number. This only works when you are multiplying or dividing between fractions.
    Even if you were correct in the first step, the second one is wrong as
    (5-5) x (1+1) = 0*2
    = 0
