$= \frac{(m+6)}{(m-12)}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{(m+7)(m-5)}{(m+2)(m+7)} \div \frac{(m-5)(m-12)}{(m+2)(m+6)}$ $= \frac{(m+7)(m-5)}{(m+2)(m+7)} \times \frac{(m+2)(m+6)}{(m-5)(m-12)}$ $= \frac{(m+7)(m-5)}{(m+7)} \times \frac{(m+6)}{(m-5)(m-12)}$ $= 1\times \frac{(m+6)}{(m-12)}$ $= \frac{(m+6)}{(m-12)}$
