$1$

#### Explanation:

Since we have the same thing on the top and bottom, this just simplifies to $1$.

In general, when we divide exponents with the same base, the base stays the same, and we subtract the powers.

In our case, we would have

$x \left(3 - 3\right) = {x}^{0} = 1$

We also get $1$.

Hope this helps!
