3ax^2 - 27a

You can factor that into
3a (x^2 - 9), which also equals
3a(x-3)(x+3).

It is not clear from your question what you are supposed to do with that algebraic expression. If it were equal to zero, x would be +3 or -3.

If you are expected to factor, try factoring out 3a first: 3a(x^2 - 9)

You can also factor x^2 - 9. Can you determine those factors?

I hope this helps.

    Reduce the rational expression to lowest terms. If it is already in lowest terms, enter the expression in the answer box. Also, specify any restrictions on the variable. 6a^4+162a/3a^4−9a^3+27a^2 6a^4+162a/3a^4-9a^3+27a^2

    No, I'm sure the problem is written like this: [(3a^3-27a)/(2a^2+13a-7)]/[9a^2/4a^2-1)] And to divide you multiply by the reciprocal. So i still don't get the problem I also know to factor, but I'm stil confused.
