    Firstly, Factorise the denonimators, then find a common denominator. Tell me if you need help from there

    When dividing fractions you just flip them and multiply. So flip the second fraction and factorise it as much as possible, and cancel terms.

    first i flipped the second fraction then it became multiply. Then i factorised the numerator and denominator of the first fraction and the. 4x^2 +6x part of the second one. I then cancelled the relevant parts out.

    the bottom half of the first fraction could be the difference of two squares
    and remember that when you divide by a fraction, its the same thing as multiplying by the inverse of it (flipping it)

    No, don't multiply out the bracket. Factorise out and cancel stuff first.
