When x^1 1 is divided by x1 what is the quotient? not sure if I wrote it clearly...in words:
x to the 1 power then minus 1,
then divide by x1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sure (x^(1)1)/(x1)=(1/x1)/(x1)=(1/x1)/(x1) * x/x=(1x)/[x(x1)]=(x1)/[x(x1)] =1/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{x^{1}1}{x1}=\frac{\frac{1}{x}1}{x1}=\frac{x}{x}*\frac{\frac{1}{x}1}{x1}=\frac{1x}{x1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11x=(1+x)=(x1) so we have \[\frac{1x}\frac{(x1)}{x1}=\frac{1}{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{1x}{x(x1)}=\frac{(x1)}{x(x1)}=\frac{1}{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i see how the numerator equals 1x after you multiplied by the x. that part I get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the denominator is giving me trouble. when you multiply x*x1 you got x1 and I'm not sure why (i thought itwould be x^2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x(x1) do you not see the corrected part a post after that post?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, i'm trying to put it all together.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the 1x on top turns into 1 (x1) and the denominator ends up as x(x1) so therefore the (x1) on top and bottom cancel each other out, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right except that x cannot be 1 or 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know it can't be 0, but why not 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one other problem i'm having how did 1x turn into (x1) What exactly did you do to get that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x1)=x+1=1x the expression before we couldn't allow x to be 1 because the denominator would be 0
