## countonme123 3 years ago need help dividing algebra terms

1. countonme123

45 TIMES Xto the fourth power TIMES Y to the fourth power divided by 15 TIMES Xto the second power TIMES Y to third power

2. countonme123

other way 15 on top

3. pfenn1

$45x^{4}y ^{4} \over15x ^{2}y ^{3}$

4. precal

|dw:1336094500078:dw|

5. precal

like this?

6. countonme123

yes sir

7. pfenn1

you mean$15x ^{2}y ^{3}\over45x ^{4}y ^{4}$

8. countonme123

yes precal has it

9. pfenn1

=$=\left( 15 \over 45 \right)\left( x ^{2} \over x ^{4}\right)\left( y ^{3}\over y ^{4} \right)$

10. pfenn1

Can you simplify it now?

11. countonme123

ok 1/3 and x2power

12. precal

|dw:1336094724230:dw|

13. countonme123

i dont know the last one

14. precal

|dw:1336094786772:dw|

15. cesar2462

precal is right pfenn1 is dummmm

16. countonme123

y to the 1 power?

17. pfenn1

remember $\left( 1 \over x ^{a} \right)=x ^{-a}$and$x ^{a}x ^{b}=x ^{a+b}$

18. cyanidesandwich

|dw:1336094932499:dw| that is how it should look

19. cesar2462

they got u pfenn1

20. pfenn1

@cesar2462, don't really appreciate the attitude. There are several ways to look at this problem and sometimes different ways can help someone understand it better. We are trying to help people learn, not just get the answer.

21. countonme123

@pfenn1 i like the idea how you separate it into sections can you do it again with another problem

22. pfenn1

sure

23. countonme123

-56 TIMES A 4thpower TIMES X 4thpower over -8 TIMES A 3rdpower TIMES X

24. pfenn1

$-56A ^{4}x ^{4}\over -8A ^{3}x$

25. cyanidesandwich

-56A^4X^4/-8A^3X that what you mean?

26. pfenn1

Sorry, I had problems with my computer.$\left( -56 \over-8 \right)\left( A ^{4}\over A^{3} \right)\left( x ^{4}\over x\right)=$

27. countonme123

thank you everyone but this medal goes @pfenn1

28. pfenn1

Thanks.

29. farmdawgnation

@cesar2462 The attitude is not necessary. If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.

30. countonme123

i agree^
