\[(1- \frac{ 5 }{ 6x })\div \frac{ 1 }{ x}-\frac{ 5 }{ 6x^2 }\]

Try a common denominator of 6x for the terms in parentheses then subtract

I think I'm supposed to flip the second one and multiply across?

I also feel like some things would cancel?

when you divide, yes.
but first you have to handle the subtraction in parentheses

Actually there are no parentheses in the question I just put them there to separate the two

ugh

or is the problem supposed to be
|dw:1436129278158:dw|

right

that's the problem

that's a much easier problem :)

OK good lol

crud wait. supposed to be 6x²

|dw:1436129523649:dw|

ok.. i did and its a little confusing

can you put up what you have so I can make sure we're on the same page?

sorry having trouble

yeah ill draw it

no problem. site's pretty glitchy sometimes

|dw:1436129702310:dw|

for the numerator?

|dw:1436129833564:dw|

so the numerator is\[6x^2-5x\]

why is it 6x^2 - 5x if the 6x^2 cancels to give -5? :s

the 6x² came from the 1.
The -5x came from 5/(6x).
You get both parts when you distribute

oh i see

why is it (-)

if we are multpying

b/c it was (-) originally and multiplied by a positive

okay

im gonna try the denominator..

ok

|dw:1436130516707:dw|

am i not cancelling when I need to

You can cancel before you multiply or after. It doesn't matter. The result will be the same

do whatever you feel more comfortable with

oh okay so now I just have 6x^2 - 5x / 1/x - 5/6x^2?

and the 6x^2 cancels?

not quite: see below
|dw:1436130975170:dw|

|dw:1436131068044:dw|

So you get 6x - 5 for the denominator.

and the whole thing is\[\frac{ 6x^2-5x }{ 6x-5 }\]

See where that all came from?

yes i see now. I thought you meant not to distrubute 6x^2 into any of the denominator

now to make it one term?

is it just x?

x(6x -5) / 6x - 5

yes. just x

oh okay. thanks so much i know that took me a while. XD

you're welcome
