1 Dividing Monomials

2 For all integers m and n and any nonzero number a …… When the problems look like this, and the bases are the same, you will subtract the exponents. ANY number raised to the zero power is equal to ONE. If the exponent is negative, it is written on the wrong side of the fraction bar, move it to the other side.

3 1. 2. Divide the coefficients Subtract the exponents When dividing the coefficients or subtracting the exponents, place the answer on the side of the fraction bar that has the larger value for that term.

4 If youre having trouble with the rules, try it like this……… First, factor numerator and denominator into prime factors. Second, cross out like terms from top to bottom. (reduce) Third, list remaining terms and multiply them back together.

5 3. 4. Divide the coefficients Subtract the exponents When dividing the coefficients or subtracting the exponents, place the answer on the side of the fraction bar that has the larger value for that term. Us cancel Each other

6 5. Remember, if the exponent is negative, the term is written on the wrong side of the fraction bar, move it to the other side. 6. Now Subtract The Exponents

7 7. Fix your negative exponent Now divide the coefficients but now ADD the exponents 8. ANY number raised to the zero power is equal to ONE.

8 9. Fix your negative exponents Now divide the coefficients and combine the exponents

9 10. Exponents OUTSIDE And INSIDE …… Distribute!! 11.

10 12. First – Simplify the numerator!! Then the denominator Now Subtract The Exponents

11 13. First – Simplify the numerator!! Then the denominator Now Subtract The Exponents

12 14. Exponents OUTSIDE And INSIDE …… Distribute!! Fix your Negative exponents Now Subtract The Exponents

13 Steps Multiply exponents Fix negative exponents Any neg. number raised to even power becomes positive… Subtract exponents (unless they are beside one anotherthen add)

14 15. Exponents OUTSIDE And INSIDE …… Distribute!! Fix your Negative exponents Now Subtract The Exponents

15 16.

16 17.

17 Multiply exponents

18 Any neg. number raised to an even power is positive Exponents OUTSIDE And INSIDE …… Distribute!! Use ( ) when Typing the -4 Into calculator!
