    dividing by 1/x^2 is the same as mutiply the numerator by x^2

    \[\frac{3}{\frac{x^3}{\frac{1}{x^2}}}=\frac{3}{x^3}\frac{x^2}{1}=\frac{3x^2}{x^3}=\frac{3*x*x}{x*x*x}\]

    You have two x's on the top and you have three in the bottom right?

    Two from the top cancel two from the bottom

    so you are left with zero x's on the top and one x on the bottom

    \[\frac{3*x*x}{x*x*x}=\frac{3}{x}\]
