Hello, need help!

I assume that we're supposed to simplify the fraction . . .

Quote:

$\displaystyle \frac{8x^2 + 24x}{2x^2+5x-3}$

Factor: .$\displaystyle \frac{8x^2+24x}{2x^2+5x-3} \;=\;\frac{8x(x+3)}{(2x-1)(x+3)}$

Cancel: .$\displaystyle \frac{8x({\color{red}\rlap{/////}}x+3)}{(2x-1)({\color{red}\rlap{/////}}x+3)} \;=\;\frac{8x}{2x-1} $
