### Example Question #89 : Monomials

Divide the following

Explanation:

To solve, we will divide the monomials using the quotient of powers.

## SOLUTION A

We have

We know

and

and so on.

Let's expand the original problem.  We get

Now, we know we can look at the numerator and cancel anything in the denominator.  So,

We can cancel the variables that have been highlighted.  So, we get

We can divide the integers, leaving us with

Which equals

## SOLUTION B

We can solve this a different way by using a shortcut.  When dividing monomials, simply subtract the quotients with the same base.

The different variables have been highlighted.  Now, we subtract.
