Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\sf \dfrac{24y^5}{14x^8} \div \dfrac{8y^2}{4x^4} \rightarrow \dfrac{24y^5}{14x^8} \times \dfrac{4x^4}{8y^2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then multiply the numerators and denominators together. \(\sf \dfrac{24y^5}{14x^8} \times \dfrac{4x^4}{8y^2} \rightarrow \dfrac{24y^5 \times 4x^4}{14x^8 \times 8y^2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just showed you, we do it horizontally..we only cross multiply when we have an equal sign between the fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how would you simplify it further because i know you can reduce it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, first we divide the numbers on the second fraction, \(\sf \dfrac{8y^2}{4x^4}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, so we have \(\sf\dfrac{2y^2}{x^4}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now simplify \(\sf\dfrac{24}{15}\) from \(\sf\dfrac{24y^5}{15x^8}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\sf 8\) is correct, but \(\sf 3\) is not..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we have: \(\sf \dfrac{8y^5}{5x^8} \div \dfrac{2y^2}{x^4}\)..now we cross multiply(I was wrong earlier..lol)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it be 8y^5 x^4 / 5x^8 2y^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if we simplify it would the final answer be \[\frac{ 4y^3 }{ 5x^4 }\]
