To simplify the expression (y^2 + 2y - 3) / (y^2 - 3y + 2), we can factor both the numerator and denominator.

The numerator can be factored as (y + 3)(y - 1), and the denominator can be factored as (y - 1)(y - 2).

By canceling out the common factor (y - 1) in both the numerator and denominator, we get the simplified form: (y + 3) / (y - 2).

The restriction for this expression is that y cannot be equal to 1 or 2, as these values would result in division by zero.
