Divide: 2x6/21 divided by 5x15/12
I have worked to this point and now I'm stuck.
2(x3)/7 * 4/5(x5) and I don't know where to go from here. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
No. the second term in th denominator factors to 5(x3), which then will divide into the numerator.
I think what you have should be....
[2(x3)/7] * [4 / (5*(x3)) ]
then cancel out the (x3) ' s
and then you should get 8/35
sorry i somehow always end up posting my suggestions after bob
i guess i type too slow :)

9/x51=8/x+5
