### How To: Divide rational expressions containing trinomials

In this video the instructor shows how to divide rational expressions that contain trinomials. A division containing two fractions can always be turned into a multiplication by multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. This way any division can be turned into a multiplication problem and solved easily. Now after you convert the division into multiplication factorize the equations. Now you can factorize the equations by splitting the middle term and grouping it i...

### How To: Divide fractions as taught by a 6th grader

He further shows how to solve a couple of examples. ...

### How To: Reduce a fraction in math

The above video is very informative to anyone who does not know the division of fractions. The author very neatly explains the meaning of a common divisor i.e. it is a number that divides two numbers evenly. Therefore, one must divide a fraction as many times until the remaining fraction has 1 as a divisor. It is very easy to find the common divisor. Both the numerator and the denominator must be divisible by that number. The author in the present video has done a good work.

And, thanks to the Internet, it's easier than ever to follow in their footst...

### How To: Divide exponents with the quotient rule

Exponent of a number is nothing but the number multiplied to it self the exponent number of times. So five squared it equal to five multiplied to it self. Now when an exponential number is divided with another such number the result is the number raised to the different of the exponents. That is the ratio of x raised by a to x raised by b is x raised to (a-b). Similarly if we multiply a exponential number with other such number, the result is equal to that number raised to the sum of exponent...

### How To: Multiply integers together

In this video the instructor shows how to multiply and divide integers. When multiplying or dividing two numbers if the signs of the two numbers are same then the sign of the result is a positive number. When multiplying or dividing two numbers if the signs of the two numbers are not same then the sign of the result is a negative number. So a positive number multiplied by a positive number gives a positive number. Similarly a negative number multiplied by a negative number gives a positive nu...
