Answer:

#(r^4p^2)/(4m^3t^4)#

Explanation:

Since we don't have any like variables on the top and bottom, we can't do anything with them. The only thing we can do is simplify #3/12#, which is #1/4#. Thus, we have

#(m^-3r^4p^2)/(4t^4)#

We can even make the negative exponent positive by bringing it to the denominator. We now have

#(r^4p^2)/(4m^3t^4)#

Hope this helps!
