When trying to solve this problem, you should think of the laws of indices. It will assist in solving this problem. Below is a picture of the laws.

So, let solve the problem.

so since x is the common term in the numerator we can use the third rule in the left column.

divide the algebraic expression by 3.

next, we will use the first rule in the right column.

finally, the answer will be;

#### Explanation:

I hope you understood, if not follow what I did with the rules of indices to solve the problem.
