Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

We can write #(f/g)(x)# as:

#(f/g)(x) = (3x - 6)/(x - 2)#

Factoring the numerator gives:

#(f/g)(x) = ((3 xx x) - (3 xx 2))/(x - 2)#

#(f/g)(x) = (3(x - 2))/(x - 2)#

#(f/g)(x) = (3color(red)(cancel(color(black)((x - 2)))))/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(x - 2)))#

#(f/g)(x) = 3#

The domain of this function is all Real numbers where #(x - 2) != 0# or where #x != 2#
