anonymous one year ago Find the quotient 27m^5 ------ 3m^3

1. Owlcoffee

You can "split" them into the producto of two more simple fractions in order to operate them more easily: $\frac{ 27m^5 }{ 3m^3 }$ the fraction can be written as: $(\frac{ 27 }{ 3 })(\frac{ m^5 }{ m^3 })$

Yes, first, let's center on the left fraction. what is 27 divided by 3?

5. anonymous

9

6. Owlcoffee

good, and we transcribe that: $(9)(\frac{ m^5 }{ m^3 })$ Now, we have to use an exponential property in order to solve the other, do you know which one it is?
