Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now you have \[\frac{\frac{3b27}{b^2}}{\frac{17}{b^2}}\], correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can write this as \[\frac{3b27}{b^2} \div \frac{17}{b^2}\] which is equal to \[\frac{3b27}{b^2} \times \frac{b^2}{17}\] here the b^2 cancels out and by factorizing the top we are left with \[\frac{3(b9)}{17}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0=[(3/b)(27/b^2)]/(17/b^2) =[(3/b)(27/b^2)]x(b^2/17) =(3b/17)(27/17) =(3b27)/17
