I need help multiplying rational expressions..

x-2/x+3 x 4x+12/6

first I took the four out from 4x +12/6 so I got
x-2/x+3 x 4(x+3)/6
but now I'm not sure what to do?

• Algebra -

(x-2)/(x+3) * 4(x+3)/6

[(x-2)(4)(x+3) ] / [ (x+3)(6) ]

2(x-2) / 3

Parentheses really help and x is x and * is "times" :)
