are $\frac{ 3x+33 }{ x+11 }$ and 3 equivalent? Using complete sentences explain why or why not.

Yes they are because if you isolate 3x+33 by multiplying x+11 by three, you get 3x+33=3x+33 :D

What do you get when you factor and reduce that fraction?

Nooo... the result is correct @averixx but you can't "isolate" the 3x+33 and you can't multiply the x+11 by 3. This is not an equation, it is an expression. You have to factor and reduce.
