    I'm assuming there are no parentheses in this expression because none were written. I got: \[a^2-4a-12/a^2-18ab+6\] All you need to do is let the 6a / 3a reduce to 2. Multiply that by the remaining 9ab to get 18ab. Everything else seemed simplified.

    well you can bring the two second parts together and just multiply them so it would be a^2-4a-12/3a^3-112(a^3)b+6(a^2)-224b
