What are the procedures for dividing a binomial by a monomial (and give an example ) ?
Example given is POLYNOMIAL (3 or more terms in the numerator). MONOMIAL is ONE term (-7x^{2}, a^{3}b^{2}c), BINOMINALS are TWO terms such as a^{2}- b^{2}.
Here is a CORRECT EXAMPLE: (3x^{2}-6x )/ -21x
Look for common factors in this case 3x:
[3x (x - 2)] / [3x] (-7), since 3x/3x = 1, cancel the terms.
You are left with (x-2) / -7
