12x

^{3}+ 8x

^{2}/ 6x

^{2}+ 4x

By factoring it out I have simplified it to 4x

^{2}/ 2x

Is there anything I can do to simplify it further? I know the rules of dividing powers and hence if it was 4x

^{2}/ 4x I know I could simplify it to to 4x (subtract the powers). however, I am not sure how this rule works when the coefficients of x are different as in this case.
