#### Explanation:

**1. Distribute the exponent of 3** by multiplying every exponent in the parentheses by 3.

Remember, variables or numbers without exponents actually have an exponent of 1.

**2. Simplify using exponent rules.** When dividing powers with the same base, subtract the exponents.

That's your final answer!
