    \[\frac{\frac{1}{36}-\frac{1}{x^2}}{\frac{1}{6}+\frac{1}{x}}\]

    Multiply every term of the numerator and denominator by 36x^2. That will cancel all denominators and simplify the complex fraction.

    yw. You might have to factor and reduce after you get the multiplication done. Always have to check.

    Both numerator and denominator will factor.
