Simplify by removing factors of 1
9w36/4w
What is the simplified form?

the way you typed it, the answer would be
9w  9  w
= 8w  9
You must mean
(9w36)/(4w)
= 9(w4)/(w4)
= 9 , w not equal to 4

the question reads
9w36 over 4w
I am supposed to simplify by removing factors of 1

I solved it for you according to that version.
Look above
Removing factors of 1 makes no sense.
1 is a factor of every number or variable, but nothing is gained by that.

Reiny I appreciate your help but this is solving a problem by factoring which means your ultimate goal isnt just to get X=. So the answer you are giving me isnt correct for what I am trying to solve.
This one of the of the ways you learn to simplify rational expressions.
