Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[[\frac{16}{m3}\frac{4}{m4}] \div [\frac{16}{m^2}\frac{m4}{m3}] ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3do you know how to combine the first set of fractions that do you know how to write \[\frac{16}{m3}\frac{4}{m4} \text{ as one fraction }?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[16(m4)4(m3)/(m3)(m4)] ? i havent figured out how to use the equation writer yet sorry! so it becomes 16m644m+12, 12m52/(m3)(m4) ?????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac{16(m4)4(m3)}{(m3)(m4)}=\frac{16m644m+12}{(m3)(m4)} \\ =\frac{12m52}{(m3)(m4)}\] that is awesome now we have to work with the second pair of fractions that follow the division sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac{16}{m^2}\frac{m4}{m3}=\frac{16(m3)m^2(m4)}{m^2(m3)} \\ =\frac{16m48m^3+4m^2}{m^2(m3)}=\frac{m^3+4m^2+16m48}{m^2(m3)}\] so you have: \[\frac{12m52}{(m3)(m4)} \div \frac{m^3+4m^2+16m48}{m^2(m3)} \\ \text{ which we can change \to multiplication } \\ \text{ so we have} \\ \frac{12m52}{(m3)(m4)} \times \frac{m^2(m3)}{m^3+4m^2+16m48}\] notice I just flipped the second fraction
