Simplify by removing factors of 1: 6w-36/6w Would the answer be 6w or 1 since 6w/6w would equal 1 ???? help me
Since you have not used parentheses to show what your numerator is I have to guess what you mean.
(6w - 36) / 6w ?????
1 - 6/w
If your really meant it like you typed it:
6w - (36/6w)
6 w - 6/w = 6 (w - 1/w)
