    Then simplify to 2/(3x^4 + 3x^3 - 18x^2)

    *my first step was because when we divide fractions we always flip the second fraction and multiply

    Please take a look at my solution to this question in the picture attached. Some tips: 1) When you encounter questions like this, simplify the individual fractions before doing any cross simplification. 2) Try to leave your answer in the factorized form as you may be able to cancel some of the terms in the numerator and denominator of the algebraic fraction. In this case, this does not apply, but factorize the numerator and denominator anyway.
