#### Answer:

Use the distributive law and divide each term in the bracket by 4.
$\frac{s}{2} + \frac{3 t}{4} - \frac{3}{2}$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{1}{4} \left(2 s + 3 t - 6\right)$ $\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times x}$ multiply by $\frac{1}{4}$ is the same as divide by 4.

= $\frac{s}{2} + \frac{3 t}{4} - \frac{3}{2}$
