Simplify the expression:

(6ax4)^2(2x)^-2

I will be happy to critique your work or thinking on this.

Note that this is like a fraction with (2x)^2 in the denominator and (6ax^4)^2 in the numerator. You will get some cancellations of powers of x that occur in both numerator and denominator. The ratio of constants that appear in the numerator and denominator (36 and 4) can also be simplified.
