When division occurs with a polynomial and the divisor is a monomial the first thing you
need to remember is that
A/C + B/C = A+B/C and then of course the opposite is true A+B/C = A/C + B/C.
To begin you need to start by separating the problem, you can do so like the example
below.
Ex: 21x³/7x = 21/7 * x³/x = 3x² (if done correctly)
The Coefficients are to be divided by one another and of course the quotient rule is to

Unformatted text preview: be used. The exponents are to be subtracted. If the divisor is not a monomial then the exponent has to be negative. If the exponent is negative, you would express your answer inverted in a fraction form so the exponent will be a positive. I explained this as best as I could and I am unsure if I did this correctly, if anyone could help me to understand this better I would greatly appreciate it....
