What is unknown?

Correct mathematical statement.

Reasoning:

Solve \(L.H.S.\)

Steps:

\[\begin{align}L.H.S. &= \frac{{3{x^2}}}{{3{x^2}}} = \frac{{3 \times x \times x}}{{3 \times x \times x}} = 1\\
L.H.S. &\ne R.H.S.\end{align}\]

The correct statement is \(\begin{align}\frac{{3{x^2}}}{{3{x^2}}} = 1\end{align}\)
