Answer

$\dfrac{6x^{2}}{10x^{3}}\cdot\dfrac{5x}{12}=\dfrac{1}{4}$

Work Step by Step

$\dfrac{6x^{2}}{10x^{3}}\cdot\dfrac{5x}{12}$ Multiply both rational expressions and simplify by removing the repeated factors in the numerator and the denominator: $\dfrac{6x^{2}}{10x^{3}}\cdot\dfrac{5x}{12}=\dfrac{30x^{3}}{120x^{3}}=\dfrac{30}{120}=\dfrac{1}{4}$
