Divide and Check

4x^4y-8x^6y^2+12x^8y^6
_______________________
4x^4y

• Math -

When dividing fractions, we divide the
coefficients and subtract the exponents in the denominator from those
in the numerator.

4X^4y/4X^4y - 8X^6y^2/4X^4y + 12X^8y^6/4X^4y =

1 - 2X^(6y^2-4y) + 3X^(8y^6-4y)
Factor the exponents of each term:
1 - 2X^2y(3y-2) + 3X^4y(2y^5-1).
