$\frac{3(x+7y)}{4x(2x-y)}$
We factor the expressions in both the numerator and denominator in order to cancel out common factors in the numerator and the denominator: $\frac{6x^{2}+42xy}{16x^{3}-8x^{2}y}$ =$\frac{2x(3x+21y)}{2x(8x^{2}-4xy)}$ =$\frac{(3x+21y)}{(8x^{2}-4xy)}$ =$\frac{3(x+7y)}{4x(2x-y)}$
