okay I been stuck on a few questions but this is just weird.

Simplify (x ^ 2 + x - 12)/(x - 2) (3x ^ 2 + 11x - 4)/(x ^ 2 - 4)

I hope that's understandable to some, because I keep getting different answers.

Are you saying that (x ^ 2 + x - 12)/(x - 2)  is getting multiplied by (3x ^ 2 + 11x - 4)/(x ^ 2 - 4) as 2 seperate terms, like (x ^ 2 + x - 12)/(x - 2) *  (3x ^ 2 + 11x - 4)/(x ^ 2 - 4), or is  (3x ^ 2 + 11x - 4)/(x ^ 2 - 4) in the denominator of (x ^ 2 + x - 12)/(x - 2)? Try using LaTeX to make the problem clearer.

This is the answer assuming the first case I stated (2 different terms being multiplied)

$$\frac{\left(x^2+x-12\right)\left(3x^2+11x-4\right)}{\left(x-2\right)\left(x^2-4\right)}$$
