Answer:

#(4a)/(3c^2)#

Explanation:

Step 1) Multiple both terms in the numerators of the fractions and multiple both terms in the denominators of the fractions:

#(3ab*16c^2)/(4c^4 9b)#

#(48abc^2)/(36bc^4)#

Step 2) Separate like terms to simplify:

#(48/36)a(b/b)(c^2/c^4)#

#(12/12)(4/3)a(1)(1/c^(4-2))#

#(4/3)a(1/c^2)#

Step 3) Combine all of the terms back again for the final simplification:

#(4a)/(3c^2)#
