To simplify (3a + 3b)/(-a-b), you can factor out a common factor of 3 from the numerator, resulting in 3(a + b). Then, you can factor out a common factor of -1 from the denominator, giving you -1(a + b). Simplifying further, you get 3/-1, which simplifies to -3. Therefore, (3a + 3b)/(-a-b) simplifies to -3.
