I need help on a Factoring problem. Its factoring a fraction, on top of another factoring fraction. Its in the comments
\[\huge\frac{\frac{30x^2+27x+6}{9x^2-49}}{\frac{30x+15}{30x-70}}\]
The size of those fraction bars is important. The top two appear to be the same length, and the third is smaller. Correct?
To factor the numerator of the top fraction, you would divide each number by 3 and get: 3(10x^2 + 9x +2)
no, the fracton bar on the top is supposed to be in the middle, i.e. it should be the top fraction normal bar, then solid black bar, then bottom fraction normal. @strawberry17 how would i do that?
\(\Huge \frac{30x^2+27x+6}{9x^2-49} \div\frac{30x+15}{30x-70}\) \(\Huge =\frac{30x^2+27x+6}{9x^2-49} *\frac{30x-70}{30x+15}\)
its supposed to be: \[\frac{30x^2+27x+6}{9x^2−49}\] over with the solid black line, \[\frac{30x+15}{30x−70}\]
Like I put, Andriod?
i don't understand what you did.
One fraction divided by another fraction.
i don't know. i tried to put it like it is in the book. thats what it says,
yes, but i get very confused with fraction.
Okay, Andriod, when we divide by a fraction, it's the same as multiplying by the reciprocal. That is, \(\div 2\) is the same as \(\large *\frac{1}{2}\) \(\large \div\frac{2}{3}\) is the same as \(\large *\frac{3}{2}\)
etc. So when we see \(\huge\div \frac{30x+15}{30x-70}\) it's easier for us if we rewrite it as \(\huge *\frac{30x-70}{30x+15}\)
ik that much, but i don't know what to do wit hthe FRACTIONS, i.e. i know the KFC method, but what/how do i factor the fraction?
@andriod09 do you understand how I factored out 3 from the numerator of the top fraction?
What does KFC stand for?
K=keep F=flip C=change @strawberry17 i have not a clue.
Andriod, look for a common factor. With \(30x^2 + 27x + 6\) you can notice that 30=3*10 27= 3*9 6= 3*2 so they have a common factor of 3.
I agree, Strawberry. Rewriting it is good, but it's good to keep it factored as it is.
i don't understand. \[:(\]\[:L\]\[:/\]
yes. i undertand what factoring is. I don't konw how to factor a fraction. hence, why this post is here.
FACTORING A FRACTION IS ALL I DO NOT KNOW. I KNOW HOW TO FACTOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS: \[x^2+3-27\]
Factoring a fraction is not different from factoring normally. Just look at the top and factor it normally. Then look at the bottom and factor it normally.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FACTOR A FRACTION.
just tell me how to do this problem please, i am getting really annoyed.
