$(16(t-t_0 )^2 (t-t_0-3))/3(t-t_0 ) =16(t-t_0 )(t-t_0-3)/3=16/3 (t-t_0 )^2-16(t-t_0 )$

Hello, Itsbaxagain!

Quote:

Simplify: . $\frac{16(t^2-2tt_o +t_o^2)(t-t_o-3)}{3t-3t_o}$

Factor: . $\frac{16(t-t_o)^2(t-t_o-3)}{3(t-t_o)}$

Reduce:. $\frac{16(t-t_o)(t-t_o-3)}{3} \quad\hdots\quad\text{and that's it}$
