    \frac{f(x)}{g(x)} =?

    Since you know f(x) = 2x and g(x) = 3x^3, you can substitute that into the function

    \frac{f(x)}{g(x)} =?

    \frac{2x}{3x^3} =?

    When a variable(x or y) with an exponent is divided by another variable with an exponent, you subtract the exponents, only if the variables are the same.

    For example:

    \frac{x}{y} ¬† Since the variables on the top and bottom are not the same, you can’t simplify it (or its already simplified)

    \frac{x^3}{x^2} =x^{3-2} =x^1

    \frac{y^5}{y^7}=y^{5-7}=y^{-2} = \frac{1}{y^2} (when an exponent is negative, you move it to the other side of the fraction to make the exponent positive)

    \frac{2x}{3x^3} =?

    \frac{2x}{3x^3}= (\frac{2}{3})x^{1-3}= (\frac{2}{3})x^{-2} = (\frac{2}{3})\frac{1}{x^2} ¬†Since you can’t simplify 2/3, you get:

    (not sure if this is how it should look —> (2/3)x^(1-3) but i’m assuming it is)

    \frac{2}{3x^2}
