It's hard to see what you mean but I'm inclined to say the answer is no.2h/h^{2}+ 2h + 2

does the 2h cancel out?

As you've written it we have:

\(\displaystyle \frac{2h}{h^2} + 2h + 2 = 2\left(\dfrac{1}{h} + h + 1\right)\)

but you can't cancel \(\displaystyle 2h\)

If you meant \(\displaystyle \frac{2h}{h^2+2h+2}\) then it won't cancel any further
