Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont understand. my algebra 1 class which was the basics of this i didnt get to take because the teacher was lazy then this year we just went back to review it and i didnt understand a bit of it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{8m^3n^2}{4mn^3} = \frac{8*m*m*m*n*n}{4*m*n*n*n} = \frac{8}{4}*\frac{m*m*m}{m}*\frac{n*n}{n*n*n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rules for multiplying terms with exponents are pretty few and simple. First the base has to be the same such as x or y etc. if you are multiplying like \[x ^{3}\times x ^{2}=x ^{5} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can also make this a bit less tedious by using: \[\frac{8m^3n^2}{4mn^3} = \frac{8*m*m^2*n^2}{4*m*n*n^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then cancel stuff that has the same power. But eventually you'll realize that you're just subtracting the exponents on the bottom from the exponents on the top (or adding negative exponents).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I don't use the equation editor cause it causes issues so I type them all by hand. The syntax they use here is called latex, and for doing fractions you just have \frac{numerator}{denominator}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No you have to put it in the equation format. All equations must be surrounded by \ [ \] (but no spaces betwen the \ and the [)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you have it right for m and n, just forgot to divide the leading coefficients.
