www,khanacademy.com

^^^ has all sorts of video tutorials, just click on the "type" of math you are doing. Instead of a math tutor, my college professors always referred us to that website.

Both numbers are divisible by 12.
So there is your 3/2.
As far as the letters, you just cross them out.
So if it was a^6 over a^3, you would write it
A*a*a*a*a*a
A*a*a
Cross out "a"s until there is only one exponent and you have a^3.
Does that make sense?
Sorry if I confused you more
