# For Problems 11-24, perform the indicated operations, and express your answers in simplest form. 9 a b 3 a + 6 ⋅ a 2 − 4 a − 12 a 2 − 6 a

To determine

To Perform:

The given operation and reduce it in simplest form.

Explanation

Rational expression demarcate as a quotient obtained by a division of two polynomials in the form of p(x)q(x) where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials in such a way that the variable x does not assume values such that q(x)=0.

Consider ab and cd are rational numbers, then the rational multiplication is shown as:

abâ‹…cd=aâ‹…cbâ‹…d=acbd

Similarly, the rational division is shown as:

If m and k are nonzero integers and n is any integer, then the two fractions nâ‹…kmâ‹…k and nm follow the fractionâ€™s fundamental principle as given below.

nâ‹…kmâ‹…k=nm

Calculation:

The given rational expression is 9ab3a+6â‹…a2âˆ’4aâˆ’12a2âˆ’6a.

Use rational multiplication and factorization to simplify the given expression
