Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 3, nonextraneous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with the previous question I think it should be "how long would it take dominique on his own" Then you would get one of those choices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. So for the previous question, i got 15/2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep! thats it let me check the 3rd question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is 3 but it would be classed as extraneous because if you substitute this in the original fractions you get zero on the bottom line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Last one because I have no idea how to solve this one but I got 1/3x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is that x^2 on the top and x^5 on the bottom?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2 on the top and x^3 on the bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It goes like this \[\frac{ 1/x ^{2} }{3/x ^{3} } = \frac{ 1 }{ x ^{2} }.\frac{ x ^{3} }{ 3 }\]

alekos

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No. I'll go a bit further.......... \[= \frac{ x ^{3} }{ 3x ^{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here are the rules of exponents \[\frac{ x ^{a} }{ x ^{b} } = x ^{ab}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then I assume it would be 3x

alekos

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, the three stays on the bottom line

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then it would just be 3/x
