    Simplifying Expressions

    Please help me with this Algebra I problem. I am supposed to come up with an answer of r/g. But I keep getting 3 r/g. I am trying to figure out what the formula is to come to this answer:

    36 x 2rh
    ___________
    3 x (9hg)

    Thanks!

    The expression you give won't give either of your answers:

    \frac{36\times 2\times rh}{3 \times 9\times hg}=\frac{4\times9\times 2\times rh}{3\times 9\times  hg}=\frac{8r}{3g}

    I'm trying to figure out you're answer but I'm not sure how you got 4r when the two nines erase each other and you're left with 4x2.
