Mr F says: I assume that the denominator is 4x^2 + 12x + 9. Although, speculating on the intent of the question, I'll bet it's meant to be 4x^2 - 12x + 9 ......

He states his answer to the problem as 3(2x - 3). Is the answer correct? If not, explain why. What would you suggest he do to solve the problem.

The above is the problem as presented to me. I do not have a clue as to how to answer it! Thanks
