    I see that you have over fifty postings.
    By now you should understand that this is not a homework service
    So you need to either post some of your work on a problem or explain what you do not understand about the question.

    (t+3)(t-3)/(2t+1)(t+3), cancel the t+3's

    t-3/2t+1 = -3-3/2(-3)+1 = -6/-5 but it aint right

    That's the idea, so can you write that value more appropriately ?

    -6/-5 can be simplified.

    Yes, that's correct. Although 6/5 is what I had in mind.
