Please help Hi wolfhound, Just to add a little to what $\displaystyle e^{i\pi}$ said.... $\displaystyle \frac{-18x^4+24x^3}{(6x^3)^2}=\frac{-6x^3(3x-4)}{(6x^3)(6x^3)}$ Can you take it from there?
Thank you e^(i*pi).

Yes this is the final answer I needed $\displaystyle \frac{-18x^4+24x^3}{(6x^3)^2}=\frac{-6x^3(3x-4)}{(6x^3)(6x^3)}$ Thanks
