What divides into 18 and 6?
2 an 3
Correct, but what is the largest number that divides into 18 and 6?
So that is your first step. Divide both the numerator and denominator by 6.
3 AS NUMERATOR
where did the 9 come from 0.o
Right. 18 is in numerator. 18 divided by 6 goes in numerator. 6 is in denominator. 6 divided by 6 goes in denominator.
Those are the letter small-case Q
could you re word that please
What looks like a 9 to you is the way I write the letter "q"
ok that makes sense
Now thta the number part is simplified, we need to simplify the variable part, the q and r variables.
Notice what exponents mean, r^5 = r * r * r * r * r
so i have 1 r in the numerator and 4 in the denominator?
Thta's it. What's left?
oh ok i have just one more
Ok. Pls post a new question.
