    I hope Furm is right. I was looking at it and I thought you had to also do something with the 6 and the 3 .... maybe I am wrong (I havent been to college for about 3-4 years now)

    Ok to get this right. You don't understand how to get from from to right?

    If yes: Shorten the term by reducing the 3 (well i don't know the proper english terms for that, but you should get it), and you'll get
    Now multiply with and you get
    After that multiply with and you have your endresult.

    Edit: Contact me via PM if you have some other things you don't get along with, i'm bored as shit, and it's quite easy to solve.
