simplify

-2a^+6ab^-12a^b/-24ab

the b -12a^b the b is to the third power

2a^b/24ab + 6ab^/24ab -12a^b to the third/24ab

12a+4ab +2ab^

2ab^+4ab +12a

I assume that x^ means x^2.

Usually the caret requires a numeric exponent. After all, it could be cubed (x^3) or something else.

Given that, we have

(-2a^2 + 6ab^2 - 12a^2b^3) / -24ab

The rest is very difficult to parse. Why not try reposting using clear notation as I did above? use parentheses where need to group terms.
