Clicking on your LaTex I think I can see what the problems look like:

1)  (21x^3+14x)/7  =  21x^3/7  +  14x/7  =  ?

2)  (3(2x-3)-x(2x-3))/(2x-3)  =  3(2x-3)/(2x-3)  -  x(2x-3)/(2x-3)   =  ?

3)  ((x^2(5x+6)-3(5x+6))/(5x+6)  =  x^2(5x+6)/(5x+6)  -  3(5x+6)/(5x+6)  =  ?

In each of these we are dividing the denominator into each of the two terms.  Then in
each of these cancel to obtain the final answer.

Or you can take the original numerators and factor them and then cancel:

1)  7x(3x^2+2)/7   =  ?

2)  (2x-3)(3-x)/(2x-3)  =  ?

3)  (5x+6)(x^2-3)/(5x+6)  =  ?

The first approach is probably easier.

Can you take them from here?

Hi;

The latexing did not turn out well so we are going to need to put the problems in an understandable form.

I am guessing for the first one:

For the second one,

The third
