Split a term into 2 by dividing one term by another, thus getting 2 terms, which can be used to simplify an equation.

Is there a point to this, or are you just giving me definitions that have to do with factoring?
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
I'm giving you the definitions to memorize.
anonymous

Trust me, I won't memorize them, not because I don't want to, but because I'm pretty sure I'm physically incapable of emmorizing that much.
