simplify 35xy/42x=
type an integer or a fraction.

  • Algebra 1A -

    factors of 35xy (numerator)
    = 5, 7 , x, y
    factors of 42x (denominator)
    = 6, 7, x
    In a fraction, you can remove common factors from BOTH numerator and denominator, as long as it is not a zero.
    Here the common factors are 7 and x.
    So the numerator becomes 5y
    and the denominator becomes 6
    Can you take it from here?
