**Simplify expressions by dividing out monomials**

EXAMPLE 2 Simplify the rational expression, if possible. State the excluded values. c. 6m3 – 12m3 18m2 SOLUTION c. 18m2 6m3 – 12m3 = 6m2 (m – 2) 6 3 m2 Factor numerator and denominator. = 6m2 (m – 2) 6 3 m2 Divide out common factors. = m – 2 3 Simplify. ANSWER The excluded value is 0.
