To simplify the expression (x/y - y/x)/(1/y + 1/x), we can start by finding a common denominator for the fractions. The common denominator is xy.

(x/y - y/x)/(1/y + 1/x) simplifies to ((x^2 - y^2)/(xy))/(x + y)/(xy).

Next, we can simplify further by multiplying the numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator.

((x^2 - y^2)/(xy))/(x + y)/(xy) simplifies to (x^2 - y^2)/(xy) * (xy)/(x + y).

The xy terms cancel out, leaving us with (x^2 - y^2)/(x + y).

No, a calculator cannot simplify this expression as it requires algebraic manipulation.
