    you simplify 12x2-48x-60. divide it by 12 since all of them are divisible by 12. you also simplify 3x2-24x+45 by dividing it by 3. you'll get x2-4x-5 and x2-8x+15.

    @Tabatabachoii You're incorrect. \[\frac{ (x+4)(x-3) }{ (x-5)(x+4) }\times \frac{ 12(x-5)(x+1) }{ 3(x-3)(x-5) }\] \[=\frac{ 12(x+1) }{ 3(x-5) }\] \[=\frac{ 4(x+1) }{ x-5 }\]

    @itsladyrw You must not eliminate the 12 and 3 when you factor out that part of the expression.
