    dividing fractions is like multiple the inverse : (3/x^2) * (x^3/1)

    ok .. but you can go further .. using : x^m/x^n = x^(m-n)

    so your expression will become : 3x^(3-2) = 3x

    but.. you must remember that when you started there was x^3 in the denominator so x is not 0

    x^3 and x^2 in the denominators
