Answer:

#color(red)((3/4)/3 = 1/4)#

Explanation:

You want to simplify #(3/4)/3#

Dividing by #3# is the same as multiplying by #1/3#, so

#(3/4)/3 = 3/4× 1/3#

Now cancel the #3# in numerator and denominator.

#color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3)))/4× 1/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3))) =1/4× 1/1 = 1/4#

#(3/4)/3 = 1/4#
