    Rational Expressions Help

    Hey there!
    Find a rational expression p/q in simplest form such that
    (9a/16b^4)p/q=3/((2a^2)b^2)

    My guess is maybe it involves ratio.

    thanks.

    \frac{9a}{16b^4}\cdot\frac{p}{q}=\frac{3}{2a^2b^2}

    Multiply both sides by \frac{16b^4}{9a}

    \frac{p}{q}=\frac{3}{2a^2b^2}\cdot\frac{16b^4}{9a}  =\frac{8b^2}{3a^3}
