## anonymous one year ago Can someone help with this problem I'm not the best at math

1. anonymous

$24x^6-18x^5 \over 3x^2$

2. anonymous

i need to divide and simplify as much as possible

3. sweetburger

seperate this into 2 like this |dw:1433772301094:dw| then reduce them both

4. anonymous

okay i got 8 and 6

5. anonymous

it would be 8x^4 and 6x^3 ?????

6. sweetburger

ya just dont forget the - in front of the 6x^3

7. sweetburger

one sec checking to make sure this is correct

8. anonymous

oh yea so it would be -6x^3

9. anonymous

right ?

10. sweetburger

ya

11. anonymous

so now what do we do ?

12. sweetburger

8x^4 - 6x^3 would be your final answer because you cant combine these any further

13. anonymous

oh okay thank you so much
