2-x/y divided by 2+x/y
What you have posted means the following:

. . . . .$2\, -\, \frac{\left(\frac{x}{y}\right)}{2}\, +\, \frac{x}{y}$

Was this what you meant? (For help with formatting, particularly with respect to grouping symbols, please review this article on formatting math as text.)

Thank you!
