Did he forget to go back and multiply it by the exponent 3? I got x3 y12 z6 over 5 for my final answer. Is that right, or did I miss a step along the way?

Dividing Monomials

  • To divide one monomial by another one, use the following properties of exponents:

  • am ÷ an = a m–n, (a ÷ b)m = am ÷ bm, a0 = 1 for any nonzero number a, and a–n = 1 ÷ an for any nonzero number a.

  • An expression is in simplified form if it has only positive exponents.

  • You will often be asked to convert a given expression into simplified form
