I'm going to assume you have to simply the expressions.
1.
Take common factor in the numerator. Try to factor the denominator and then cancel.

Again, common factor numerator, factor the denominator and cancel.
3.
I'm not sure what you need to do here apart from just factor both the numerator and denominator.
