    Hello, need help!

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


    \frac{8x^2 + 24x}{2x^2+5x-3}
    We are expected to know how to factor and cancel . . .


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

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