I got x3 y12 z6 over 5 for my final answer. Is that right, or did I miss a step along the way? 0 answersPost by Jorge Sardinas on May 20, 2012Okay he made one mistake give him a break.He's done fantastic on the other videos!He is a very good mathematician. 0 answersPost by RAFAEL MENDIVES on July 3, 2011is the answer x^3y^12z^6/125 ?

### 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
