To simplify the expression (2p - 24)/(4p - 48), you can start by factoring out a common factor of 2 from both the numerator and denominator. This gives you (2(p - 12))/(4(p - 12)).

Next, you can simplify further by canceling out the common factor of (p - 12) in the numerator and denominator. This leaves you with 2/4, which simplifies to 1/2.

Therefore, the simplified form of (2p - 24)/(4p - 48) is 1/2.
